Real Madrid vs Paris Saint-German certainly didn't disappoint.
The two heavyweights of world football met at the iconic Bernabeu stadium and it was a real feast of attacking football and flair.
Come the end, Real had done what they always do in the Champions League; they won. Zinedine Zidane's side recorded a rather unexpected 3-1 victory, setting them up perfectly for the return leg at the Parc des Princes in two weeks.
A Cristiano Ronaldo brace and a goal from Marcelo canceled out Adrien Rabiot's opening strike, with Ronaldo's first goal really sparking some debate.
It came from the penalty spot, but it was what happened just before the Champions League's top scorer hit the ball that got people talking.
The ball popped up a fraction in mid-air, allowing Ronaldo to strike it on the volley and generate a ridiculous amount of power.

VIDEO: RONALDO DEFIES THE LAWS OF PHYSICS
At half-time, BT Sport pundit Michael Owen actually tweeted thinking that Ronaldo had touched the ball twice, but after watching the replay, he disregarded that theory.
So, was it a bizarre fluke? Well, Rio Ferdinand looked at the incident and then proposed an interesting theory, one that if true, further enhances Ronaldo's reputation as one of the greatest players of all time.
VIDEO: FERDINAND'S THEORY
If that was deliberate from Ronaldo, then it may be some kind of witchcraft. How can the ball bobble off the ground without him touching it? Surely him placing his standing foot near the ball cannot generate that kind of force on purpose?
Mesut Ozil's dink over the goalkeeper after hitting the ball into the ground is special, but this would be a different kettle of fish.
The only downside is that the kick should have been retaken as the ball has to be stationary for a penalty. We apologise for being killjoys.
RONALDO THE RECORD-BREAKER ONCE AGAIN
The serial goal scorer broke another record at the Bernabeu on Wednesday, becoming the first player to score 100 Champions League goals for one club.
Many had written him off before the game despite his hattrick against Real Sociedad on the weekend, but once again, he proved all the doubters wrong.
