CRISTIANO RONALDO SCORES SENSATIONAL HATTRICK AS JUVENTUS ADVANCE IN CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Cristiano Ronaldo declared after his latest Champions League super-show: “That’s why Juventus bought me”

The Portuguese international superstar scored a brutal second leg hat-trick to destroy Atletico Madrid’s dream of playing this season’s final in their own stadium.

Trailing 2-0 from the first leg, Juve were up against it in Turin against an Atletico Madrid side that had kept clean sheets in each of their last five matches.

But Ronaldo’s 52nd career hat-trick – and his fourth against Atletico – sends Juventus into the last eight.

Ronaldo powered home a tremendous first-half header just shy of the half-hour mark before bagging with another aerial effort four minutes after the break.

And with 86 minutes on the clock, he fired home from the penalty spot after Federico Bernardeschi had been shoved by Angel Correa.

Speaking after the final whistle and one week on from his former side, Real Madrid , being dumped out in equally sensational circumstances, Ronaldo declared: “It had to be a special night and it was, not just for the goals, but for the team and their incredible attitude.

“This is the mentality you need in the Champions League and we are on the right track.”

Ronaldo’s ultimate disrespect to Diego Simeone after amazing comeback
Asked about Juve not being able to complete such a memorable comeback in previous years, Ronaldo responded: “This is why Juve brought me in, to help on magic nights like this.

“Atleti are a really tough team to face, but we are strong too and proved we deserved to go through.

“It’s too early to talk about the Final, let’s take it one step at a time.”

Atletico forward Antoine Griezmann admitted: “Tonight, Juve were superior on all levels
