The Portuguese with an impressive performance, is looking forward to deliver the Champions League to Juventus, a reason he was signed for
Cristiano Ronaldo once again underlined his worth in Europe’s elite competition as his hat-trick overturned a 2-0 first-leg deficit against Atletico Madrid to send Juventus into the Champions League last eight.
Trailing 2-0 from the first leg in Spain, Ronaldo was facing up to the prospect of failing to reach at least the semi-finals for the first time since 2010 – and only the second time in 12 seasons.
Having brought the tie level with two typical headers, Ronaldo capped off another remarkable performance as he then smashed in the tie-winner from the spot four minutes from time, after Federico Bernardeschi had been fouled in the area.
It was his 124th goal in the Champions League and eighth hat-trick in the competition. The home fans erupted on the final whistle and the players rushed to Ronaldo.
“It was meant to be a special night and it was, not just for my goals but for the attitude we showed,” the 34-year-old said.
“That is the sort of mentality you need to win the Champions League.
“This was why Juventus brought me here. To help do things that they have never done before.”
The Portugese for many is the greatest footballer of all time and shouldn’t be compared to likes of Messi, Hazard, Neymar .
Same Champions League night Lionel Messi put up an impressive performance as always as Barcelona ease pass French side Lyon, made scored two goals and made two assist.
