Remarkable Ronaldo Comments Before Atlético Madrid Tie Come To Fruition

TURIN Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo scores during the second leg of their Champions League round-of-16 tie against Atletico Madrid at the Allianz Stadium.—AP Champions League Round of 16: Overwhelming Support for Juventus to Beat Atletico Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo proved to be a one man wrecking ball for Juventus, scoring all three of their goals in the team's epic 3-2 comeback win over Atletico Madrid in their March 12 Champions League match up. Juventus enters the game trailing 2-0 and probably needs Ronaldo to continue terrorizing Atletico Madrid in order to advance. Only Sevilla (27) and Getafe (23) have conceded more goals than Atletico Madrid at the hands of Cristiano Ronaldo, who has torn Atletico apart in the past.

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. Atletico Madrid must be sick to the back teeth of playing against him and it appears the Portuguese enjoys playing against Real Madrid's city rivals.

The visitors failed to muster a shot on target as they paid the price for an ultra-cautious approach by coach Diego Simeone in the last-16 second leg tie. Let us know what you think in the comment section below.

On the other side of the coin, Atletico Madrid also won their previous match as they beat Leganes at home 1-0.

"Luckily we were able to overcome the calls that went against us with the VAR", Godin said.

German intel sharing at risk over Huawei spat
However, Germany does not appear swayed by the US' arguments against Huawei, and plans to allow Huawei to bid for the project. Also on rt.com U.S. advises Italy to steer clear of China's new Silk Road... because it's a National Security issue?

Juve thought they had scored an early goal when Giorgio Chiellini struck from close range, only for referee Bjorn Kuipers to give a foul for Ronaldo's challenge on goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

While another said: "CR7 the best".

Can Ronaldo steer Juventus to European glory?

That will only turn the screw for Juventus, who are yearning for their first Champions League triumph in 23 years, after losing two finals in the last four seasons. Leonardo Spinazzola makes his debut at the back!

This year's Champions League final will be played at Atletico's Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.
