Karim Benzema scored the only goal of the second leg in a 1-0 victory for Real at the Bernabeu.
And Los Blancos reacted to the Frenchman’s performance by tweeting: “Mr Champions League.”
However, supporters of ex-Real star Ronaldo were left far from impressed.
That’s because they believe the Portugal legend is the ultimate Champions League player.
Ronaldo, now playing Saudi Arabia with Al-Nassr, won the title five times across his Manchester United and Real spells.
On top of that, the 38-year-old holds the most appearances in the competition with 183.
Ronaldo also has the most goals with 140, plus the mosts assists with 42.
On the flip side, 35-year-old Benzema has also won five Champions Leagues.

Another declared: “Don’t disrespect Cristiano like that.”
One noted: “Show some respect to Cristiano.”
Another added: “That’s a bit shameless considering it is always going to be Cristiano.”
