Champions League: Juventus, Manchester City reach quarterfinals

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Hat Trick Against Atletico Madrid Breaks All Time Record Sends Juventus In Quarter Finals of Champions League 2018-19

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Hat Trick Against Atletico Madrid Breaks All Time Record Sends Juventus In Quarter Finals of Champions League 2018-19

Juventus went all out in attack and got the decisive third goal four minutes from time.

Ronaldo scored a hat-trick as Juve overcame a 2-0 first leg deficit to beat Atletico Madrid 3-0 on the night to go through 3-2 on aggregate.

In different colours this time, the Portuguese forward displayed why he was the ideal man for the occasion as a sublime hat-trick from him helped Juventus overturn a 2-0 deficit against Atletico Madrid that sealed a ticket into the quarterfinals for the Bianconeri.

"Atletico was a complicated team to face, but we are also strong and we deserved to go through". "This is what we wanted in the first leg". The draw for the quarterfinals of the Champions League takes place on Friday.

Atletico, who had not conceded a goal in their previous four Champions League games, packed their defence believing they could shut Ronaldo out again. "All the boys showed their maturity, putting in a great performance". The Italian title-holders have not won the Champions League since 1996, and have finished runners-up twice in the past four seasons.

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

Juventus signed the five-time Ballon d'Or victor for 100 million euros ($117 million) last summer and pay him a 31 million euros annual salary.

In an interview earlier this year , Macy said his daughter's college application process was a "stressful" experience. IMG Academy in Bradenton said late Tuesday that 36-year-old Mark Riddell has been suspended indefinitely.

However, Atletico wasted a glorious opportunity to leave Juventus requiring three second-half goals as Alvaro Morata sent a header over the crossbar from no more than 10 yards out.

Giorgio Chiellini fired home from close range after a goalmouth scramble from a corner, but both the referee and VAR controversially ruled that Ronaldo had kicked the ball out of the hands of goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

Kean had a chance to score the victor, but failed. 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.

It was Ronaldo's eighth hat-trick in the competition, moving him level with Barcelona's Lionel Messi and demonstrating why Juventus paid Real Madrid €112 million (then US$131.5 million) for the Portugal star who has dominated the competition in recent years.

"Juventus played in a similar way to what we did in the first leg".

"I don't think it was lack of commitment or lack of character", Simeone said. "They simply played better and we have to congratulate them".
