Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick sees Juventus progress over Atlético
Two headers and a penalty from the Atlético Madrid terroriser were enough to overcome a first-leg deficit and The Old Lady strolls on in the Champions League.
Juventus 3-0 Atlético Madrid: match report
Juventus beat Atlético Madrid 3-0 on Tuesday night to overturn a 2-0 defeat at the Wanda Metropolitano with thanks to a hat-trick from Cristiano Ronaldo.
The summer signing predicted he'd score three before the game and he did not disappoint with a pair of headers and a penalty to seal the deal against a woeful Atlético Madrid side at the Allianz stadium.
Juventus threatened early and Chiellini had a goal ruled out after Ronaldo was ruled to have kicked the ball from Jan Oblak's hands as he went down to the collect from one of Juve's early crosses. It was a sign of things to come.
They whipped the ball in time and time again with Atlético growing increasingly nervous under the deliveries. They eventually cracked when Ronaldo got a run on Juanfran at the back post and headed home after 27 minutes.
He headed home a second after 48 minutes to level matters on aggregate but it only seemed a matter of time before they took the lead outright given Atlético's lack of attacking intent. They had zero shots on target during the 90 minutes and had no answer to Juventus' intensity.
After that second goal, Atlético did improve but it felt more like game management from the home side than Atlético taking the game to their opponents.
Angel Correa chased Federico Bernardeschi into the box and tripped him before Ronaldo slammed the penalty home after 86 minutes leaving Atlético Madrid little time to wake themselves out of their slumber.
Juventus, early season favourites to win the competition, went through a dip in form recently but they were back to their best and are in the draw for the quarter-final on Friday with Atlético left nursing their wounds.
