The Italian side invested heavily into signing Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer in an attempt to make all the difference in the Champions League.

On an European night in which Juventus needed their star man whom they forked out €99 million to buy from Real Madrid, it was he who stepped to the mantle to help Massimo Allegri's men overturn the 0-2 first leg deficit.

The forward that they were facing, Cristiano Ronaldo, was someone they knew well and, once again, it was the Champions League record-breaker who did all the damage.

Atletico Madrid leads the tie 2-0 after defeating Juventus as the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in the first leg.

It was his eighth Champions League treble, meaning he now shares...

Rampant Manchester City demolished a woeful Schalke 7-0 to complete a 10-2 aggregate win and become the third English side into the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Tuesday.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor then completed the fightback from the penalty spot with four minutes remaining.

In fact, the former Wolfsburg manager even predicted that Ronaldo will score a hattrick and Juventus will qualify, while speaking to the media three days ago. "It was a great result, scoring twice and not conceding, but we will have to be prepared for the final 90 minutes in Turin". "That is why they won the game".

Ronaldo made no mistake from the spot to score his 25th goal against Atletico, and fourth hat-trick, to spark pandemonium among the home crowd.

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

He grabbed his second shortly after half-time, in the 49th minute, when another header was ruled to have gone over the line.

Juventus scored one more in the 86th minute when Bernardeschi was pushed to the floor by Atletico Madrid player Correa in the 83rd minute, the referee rewarded a penalty kick.

Since the Madrid game he has not scored in the league and has been overtaken as the top Serie A scorer by Sampdoria's Fabio Quagliarella, who has 20 goals to Ronaldo's 19.

"When I said we are a teenager team, I'm not saying we are not going to fight", Guardiola said.
