  • Cristiano Ronaldo,Juventus,Atletico Madrid

The hat-trick lifts Ronaldo 22 goals clear of Lionel Messi in the all-time Champions League goal-scoring charts with 124 in total.

Diego Simeone took the blame as Juventus overturned a two-goal Atletico Madrid lead to knock them out of the Champions League.

Juventus started brightly in front of their home fans, straining _Atleti'_s backline.

The Bianconeri made their intentions known right from the fourth minute as Ronaldo contested for the ball with Jan Oblak which fell kindly to Giorgio Chiellini who earlier flicked a header.

Kean was the star performer for Juventus as he scored 2 goals.

Stage by stage we will try to get past our opponents. But the Portuguese man's goals meant that Juventus completed the turnaround needed for them to go through instead.

The ball was worked to Joao Cancelo, who crossed into the penalty area for Ronaldo, whose powerful header was pushed out by Oblak but not before it had crossed over the line.

However, referee Bjorn Kuipers pointed to the spot after Angel Correa brought down Bernadeschi, and Ronaldo finished the job with four minutes remaining. We had played quite well towards half-time and created a big chance, but were unable to do enough in the second half.

Juventus thus quality 3-2 on aggregate.

FT: 3-0 And that is a famous, famous win for the Old Lady!

The English champions qualify with a 10-2 aggregate having won the first leg 3-2 away on Germany.

"Surely we were wrong in many things but that's what I tell my players".

"It was a clear result".

"We have to stay calm, be humble and know that we're playing a very strong side". 1-0 to Juve. "The players gave a great night of football to the Italian public".

Ronaldo had only scored once in six games in this season's Champions League heading into Tuesday night's match. "This is the mentality you need in the Champions League".

"We didn't manage to counter their performance".

The sight of Sane causing so much discomfort for his former club hardly helped their mood.

The Argentine added his second three minutes later, poking home at close range courtesy of Raheem Sterling's backheel from the byline.
