65,000 Fans Scream "SIII" After Cristiano Ronaldo Scores His Hat-Trick

The former Real Madrid player also took his tally against Atletico to 25 goals in 33 matches in all competitions.

This will require another superhuman effort from Cristiano Ronaldo, but if anyone can muster up those vital goals, it is him.

After Atlético Madrid won the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie over Juventus, their manager Diego Simeone celebrated in controversial fashion. They will have to bring the fight to Atletico in the second leg but, unfortunately, that's precisely Atletico's bag, even without the suspended Diego Costa. Should Atletico Madrid score an away goal in this one, it would require Juventus to win by three goals in order to reach the final eight.

A VAR review denied Juve a fourth-minute opener, but Ronaldo's first header of the game gave them hope and the Serie A leaders drew level in the tie thanks to the Portugal superstar's aerial power again. "People are only looking for mistakes, but that's how it is and the coach and the team are experienced enough and we have thick skin".

Atletico's first real chance fell to on-loan striker Alvaro Morata who got between two defenders to meet Koke's cross from the right only to head over.

The draw for the quarter-finals of the Champions League is on Friday 15 March.

James Corden pulls the ultimate prank on David Beckham
The real Beckham statue was eventually unveiled at StubHub Center at LA Galaxy's 2019 MLS season opener earlier this month. At this point, Corden came bounding out from his perch in hysterics, and the two embraced into a good-natured hug.

Ronaldo nearly scored when his long-range free kick forced Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak to make a hard save in the ninth minute.

While another said: "CR7 the best".

Juve are yet to lose in 27 league games to date this season, and the defeat in Madrid came amid a run of five successive domestic victories. He had scored four goals in six Champions League games against the city rival.

Can Ronaldo steer Juventus to European glory?

Juventus was runner-up in the Champions League in 2015 and 2017.
