CR7: Champions League king Ronaldo delivers for Juventus

Champions League Round of 16: Overwhelming Support for Juventus to Beat Atletico Madrid

Champions League Round of 16: Overwhelming Support for Juventus to Beat Atletico Madrid

Juventus still had to see out the closing stages with an Atletico goal being enough to eliminate the 2015 and 2017 runners-up, but the visitors barely threatened in the second half as Diego Simeone's side became the latest high-profile club to bow out of this year's competition.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is the best in the world, he can put in these performances on big nights", added the Argentinian coach.

Two headers and a penalty four minutes from time clinched a place in Friday's last-eight draw with a dominant display and 3-2 aggregate victory.

The 48-year-old Simeone, who last month had his contract extended until 2022, arrived in December 2011 and led Atletico to the Europa League title that same season.

Ronaldo completed his treble with a late penalty, and the result keeps Juve on course for a Serie A and European double in what could reportedly be Massimiliano Allegri's last season in charge of the club.

"It would've been really odd for Ronaldo to end his Champions League season with only one goal".

"That's why Juventus bought me, to help them in games like this". "I do my job and I'm very happy".

President Trump has a theory about those Melania body-double rumors
He says "the Fake News" has "photoshopped" pictures of Melania, but that's not where the pseudo-theory arose. Hosts of the ABC program debated whether an impostor had traveled with Trump.

The Portugal global was signed by Juve for £100million last summer and a serious tilt at the Champions League was part of the reason that he moved to the club.

The Champions League's record scorer took his tally in the tournament to 124, with four goals this season.

He said: "It had to be a special night and it was, not just for the goals, but for the team and their incredible attitude".

The Italian giants were 2-0 down heading into the second leg of their round of 16 tie against Atletico on Tuesday, leaving them with the hard task of mounting a big comeback. We Argentines are proud that Lionel Messi is Argentinian.

However, Atletico wasted a glorious opportunity to leave Juventus requiring three second-half goals as Alvaro Morata sent a header over the crossbar from no more than 10 yards out.

The Portuguese has been directly involved in 77 goals in 77 Champions League knockout appearances - 63 goals and 14 assists.

Atletico, who had not conceded a goal in their previous four Champions League games, packed their defence believing they could shut Ronaldo out again. "The players gave a great night of football to the Italian public".
