When: April 23, 2003
Moment: Cristiano wasn't the first Ronaldo to make a big splash in Madrid—in 2002, the Brazilian Ronaldo joined Zidane and Figo as part of Real's famous "galacticos" team. In his first year with Madrid, Ronaldo wowed the world with a hat trick against Manchester United in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final at Old Trafford. How ill was Ronaldo? The Manchester faithful gave him a standing ovation when he was substituted.
Complex says: Legend has it that this was the first match ever attended by Roman Abramovich, who was so taken by the action that he went and bought Chelsea.
