Champions League king Ronaldo delivers for Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo of Juventus

Juve's Giorgio Chiellini put the ball in the Atletico net in the 4th minute, but the goal was called back for a Ronaldo foul on goalkeeper Jan Oblak, reports Efe news. This is the greatest comeback in Juventus' history and the Italian champions had never won a tie after losing the first leg 2-0.

"This is why Juve brought me in, to help on magic nights like this".

"It had to be a special night and it was, not just for the goals, but for the team and their incredible attitude", said Ronaldo.

Ronaldo is looking for a fourth straight Champions League title, while Madrid were eliminated without him by Ajax last week.

Atletico, who had not conceded a goal in their previous four Champions League games, packed their defence believing they could shut Ronaldo out again.

Atletico were also showing plenty of intent going forward with both Koke and Antoine Griezmann getting strikes away from distance, but it was not long before Juventus got the goal that they deserved.

"I wanted to us play like that also in the first leg, but then I changed something and it did not go the right way".

The win earned Juventus a spot in the quarterfinals, worth at least 16 million euros ($18 million) from UEFA and ticket sales.

"He has all the pressure on his shoulders and he scores three against Atletico Madrid and they go through to the quarter-finals", said Guardiola after his side beat Schalke 7-0.

Cristiano Ronaldo was the difference maker in Turin as the club moves onto the quarterfinal stage of the Champions League keeping alive Ronaldo's potential wining streak.

"It was a superb match tonight, with a wonderful public".

Ronaldo opened the scoring with a terrific first-half header and levelled the aggregate score four minutes into the second half. He now has the Champions League records for the most goals, most assists, most penalties, most free-kicks an the most goals in the knockout rounds. "We didn't have many chances apart from (Alvaro) Morata's header".

Meanwhile, Ronaldo said he also hopes to play a role in European champion's Portugal's up coming matches having not played since the beginning of the season. Juventus were awarded a penalty when Bernardeschi was pushed by Correa inside the area, and the 34-year-old stepped up to dispatch the penalty into the bottom corner.
