Karim Benzema's tiny little flick to Ronaldo is a thing of beauty because it's the kind of devilish move that makes soccer special. At first glance, it's just another back-heel. Then Ronaldo comes charging down the pitch with nothing but green and a goalkeeper in front of him and you realize, oh my God, that play was timed to perfection. Nobody can stop it.
The score came minutes after a scoring threat from Barcelona, making the goal and the beautiful play setting it up that much sweeter.
