Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick fires Juventus past Atlético and into last eight

Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick fires Juventus past Atlético and into last eight

Do you think Juventus can go on to win the tournament? It was a simple match for Atletico Madrid as they received a goal through Saul in the 50th minute of the match.

The Portuguese is looking for a fourth successive Champions League title, while Real Madrid, who sold him for €100m (£88.3m) last summer, were eliminated by Ajax last week. Let us know in the comments section below.

Ronaldo netted from open play in each half and then converted a late penalty as Juventus advanced 3-2 on aggregate, ending Atletico's hopes of reaching the final at their Wanda Metropolitano Stadium. The shot seemed to take a slight deflection off Ronaldo, who was the closest player to Godin but wasn't able to block the effort. "It was a great result, scoring twice and not conceding, but we will have to be prepared for the final 90 minutes in Turin".

Ronaldo has always been positionless but this was the culmination of all that learned intelligence over the years as he switched from the left to the right to centre forward and back again, depending on when and where he was sensing weakness, an impatient hair-gelled shark smelling the blood in the water. However, following a VAR review it was declared that Ronaldo had fouled Jan Oblak in the build-up.

Ronaldo did get the second goal three minutes after the break.

While another said: "CR7 the best".

Juventus have progressed in a Champions League knockout tie having lost the first leg for the first time since 2005-06 v Werder Bremen.

Juve: It's plan and simple - Juve has to score two goals to have a chance, but if Atletico scores just one, the Italian side will need four goals. He had scored four goals in six Champions League games against the city rival.

"We played with the right spirit and our fans were the 12th man tonight".
