Football fans on Twitter took the opportunity of Real Madrid’s misery to pay tribute to Ronaldo. 

Although he wasn’t in action on that Tuesday night, Ronaldo became the second trending item on Twitter Nigeria as football fans reacted to Real Madrid’s horror outing in the Champions League. 

Luka Modric was also among the trending topic on Twitter as fans questioned the credibility of all the individual awards he won in 2018. 

Since winning the 2018 FIFA Best Player of the Year award and Ballon d’Or, the Croatian midfielder has been a shadow of himself this season. 

Former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane was also heavily mentioned on Twitter.

The Champions League as expected dominated Twitter conversations on Tuesday night as fans gave their reactions in real time.
