Cristiano Ronaldo: Juventus forward produces another iconic Champions

2019-04-07 | Since 8 Month

Cristiano Ronaldo was signed to win Juventus the Champions League - and he might yet do just that.

The Portuguese produced his latest masterclass in Europe's elite competition to bring the Italian side back from the brink of a last-16 exit against Atletico Madrid and book their place in the quarter-finals.

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.

His latest extraordinary performance means that:

Ronaldo has now scored 124 goals in Europe's elite club competition - that's 18 clear of second-placed Lionel Messi on the list of leading scorers. It's also more than three-time finalists Atletico Madrid's entire total.

Ronaldo has scored eight Champions League hat-tricks, the joint-most in the competition alongside Messi.

Ronaldo remains in contention to add to his five Champions League titles - only Real Madrid legend Francisco Gento, with six, has won more European Cups.

It is almost four years since a team featuring Ronaldo was knocked out of the Champions League and he could still win the competition for a fourth consecutive season.
