Juventus RONALDO “DISGRACES” Athletico with HAT RICK


Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick as Juventus stunned Atletico Madrid 3-0 to reach the Champions League quarter-finals 3-2 on aggregate.

Trailing 2-0 from the first leg in Madrid, Juventus thought they had halved the deficit within four minutes when Giorgio Chiellini turned the ball in from a corner, but his effort was ruled out by VAR.

But Ronaldo – who had only scored one Champions League goal all season coming into the game – gave them hope when he headed in Federico Bernadeschi’s cross with 27 minutes gone, and pulled Juve level three minutes after the break from another wide delivery.
