RONALDO TREBLE STUNS ATLETICO MADRID


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.
With extra-time looming, Bernadeschi was nudged over by Angel Correa inside the Atletico box and referee Bjorn Kuipers pointed straight to the spot, from which Ronaldo showed nerves of steel to send Jan Oblak the wrong way and fire Juventus into the quarter-finals.
