Cristiano Ronaldo fans react to STUNNING Juventus hat-trick vs Atletico Madrid

The entire Juventus Stadium erupted when Cristiano Ronaldo scored a late penalty against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

With Atletico making little effort to look for the away goal that could have changed the complexion of the tie, Juventus continued to press forward.

While one ecstatic fan said: "CRISTIANO RONALDO".

In the simplest terms, it's absolutely essential for Juventus to score the first goal of the match.

Atletico Madrid will automatically advance with any win, draw or one-goal loss. 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.

The Spaniards had survived an early scare when Giorgio Chiellini's goal was disallowed after a VAR review.

The draw for the quarter-finals of the Champions League is on Friday 15 March. Ronaldo, nearly an art installation piece of hypertension and muscle at this point, didn't need a second invitation to win the header by liquidating and then consuming the hapless Juanfran, out of position at left back, like a protein shake.

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

Can Ronaldo steer Juventus to European glory?

Juventus have progressed in a Champions League knockout tie having lost the first leg for the first time since 2005-06 v Werder Bremen. Kean was the star performer for Juventus as he scored 2 goals.

Atletico Madrid is back in the round of 16 after failing to make it out of the group stage last season. Last year, it was eliminated by Ronaldo's Real Madrid in the quarterfinals.

"We played with the right spirit and our fans were the 12th man tonight".
