Speaking to former Good Morning Britain co-host Piers Morgan in 2019, Ronaldo claimed that sensational bicycle kick didn't come close to matching his experience with 27-year-old Rodriguez under the sheets.
During ITV's Cristiano Ronaldo Meets Piers Morgan, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner said: "No, not [when compared] with my Geo, no!
"I tried to score this goal for many, many years. I had scored 700-odd goals, but I hadn't done this.
"I thought, 'Finally I had scored a bicycle [kick], the beautiful jumping.'
"The way I had done against [Gianluigi] Buffon, against Juventus, in the Champions League. It was a beautiful goal."
Ronaldo started dating Spanish model Rodriguez back in 2016 after ending his five-year relationship with Irina Shayk.
The former Manchester United superstar and Rodriguez had their first child together in 2017 with the birth of Alana Martina.
Rodriguez has been raising Ronaldo's three other children -- Cristiano Jr and twins Eva and Mateo -- alongside Alana.
Ronaldo told Morgan that he wants to tie the knot with Rodriguez in the future, saying that he "open[s] the heart for her and she opens the heart for me."
The Portugal captain explained: "We'll be [married] one day, for sure. It's my mum's dream as well. So, one day. Why not?
"It's great. She's my friend. We have conversations. I open the heart for her and she opens the heart for me."
Ronaldo scored his wonderful overhead kick against Juventus in the first-leg quarter-final clash at the Allianz Stadium.
The former Los Blancos superstar was applauded by Juventus fans, with Ronaldo admitting that the warm reception in Turin was a factor in his decision to sign for the Italian club in 2018.
Ronaldo told DAZN: "When the people start to applaud me in the stadium I was like, 'Wow.'
"[It] surprised me a lot because this has never happened in my life, so [it] was [an] unbelievable moment."
