Ronaldo’s Lyon hoodoo, Hazard’s struggles and all the stats behind the CL’s first night back

A whole host of fascinating statistics have surfaced online this evening, following the resumption of the Champions League.

Madrid & Juve sent packing

On the back of a 5-month hiatus, Europe’s premiere club competition finally returned to screens across the globe a short time ago.

A pair of last-16 2nd-legs were served up, in the form of Manchester City vs Real Madrid, and Juventus vs Lyon.

It was City and Lyon who held the advantage ahead of proceedings getting underway this evening, on the back of respective first-leg victories.

And, when all was said and done, it was also the English and French outfits who held on to advance to the Champions League’s quarter-finals.

Pep Guardiola’s Sky Blues downed Real Madrid by 2 goals to 1, courtesy of strikes from Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus.

It was the usually reliable Raphael Varane who proved the talk of the clash at the Etihad, though, with the Frenchman having been solely at fault for both of Manchester City’s goals.

Unlike Real, Juventus did manage to overturn their first-leg defeat in Turin tonight.

After Memphis Depay handed Lyon the lead, and a 2-0 aggregate advantage from the penalty spot inside 10 minutes, the Bianconeri fought their way back into proceedings, to eventual turn the matchup on its head.

Cristiano Ronaldo was unsurprisingly the man twice on target, adding to a penalty of his own with a stunning left-footed strike on the hour-mark.

The Portuguese superstar’s heroics, however, did not prove enough, as, despite their victory on the night, Juventus crashed out on the away goals rule.

Zidane finally downed/Lyon living on the edge

As outlined above, meanwhile, following the first in what will no doubt prove a host of thrilling Champions League nights over the weeks to come, a number of statistics have since surfaced online, highlighting some of the key takeaways from the evening’s action.

First, on the back of Man City’s ousting of Real, the focus surrounded the likes of Eden Hazard and Zinedine Zidane:

When it comes to Juventus’ surprise European exit at the hands of Lyon, some of the notable stats include the following:
