Madrid, Feb 15 (IANS) Football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo called himself a stand out performer after scoring twice for holders Real Madrid against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League Round-of-16 tie here.

Real Madrid trailed 0-1 to Adrien Rabiot’s 33rd-minute strike at the Santiago Bernabeu here on Wednesday.
