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

Cristiano Ronaldo's sensational hat-trick did the damage on a historic night in Turin, which started with Atletico holding a 2-0 lead from the first leg of the last-16 tie.

Simeone praised Ronaldo's contribution, and said he was not bothered that the Juve star had replicated his explicit gesture celebration from the first game in Madrid.

Indeed, the Juve star is the only man to bag a hat-trick against Diego Simeone's Atletico side - and he's done it a few times, too.

Who will progress to the quarter final?

"Not just for my goals but for the attitude we showed".

"No, we aren't favourites, we are one of the favourites to win the Champions League", he went on.

Juventus vs Atletico Madrid ended 3-0 in favour of the Bianconeri following a stunning five-star performance from Cristiano Ronaldo on the night.

The Portuguese worldwide hit a historic hat-trick to complete a sensational comeback in the last 16 of the Champions League for Juventus.

"This is against an Atletico Madrid team which is known for having an unbelievable defence".

But Tuesday saw the Champions League's all-time top scorer back to his best, as he dragged his new side into the competition's last eight. All he did was net a hat-trick to reverse the deficit and send the Italian giants through to the quarterfinals.

He has nearly played as many league minutes this season (2,239) - with 11 games remaining - as he did in 2017-18 for Real (2.297).

"These are two different matches, the first leg and second leg".

But Simeone is adamant his side will take nothing for granted despite their commanding advantage from the first leg. He managed 10 goals in the last five games of that season's tournament, including the two hat-tricks mentioned above.

"It would have been unusual for Ronaldo to finish the Champions League with just one goal", said Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri.
