  • Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates after scoring Juventus' opening goal in a 3-0 win over Atletico Madrid

"In the history of Juve there was never a comeback like this", said Ronaldo.

Juventus rallied from a two-goal first-leg deficit to reach the Champions League quarterfinals Tuesday.

"This is why Juve brought me in, to help on magical nights like this".

Do you think Ronaldo can win the Champions League with Juventus this season?

After reaching at least the quarterfinals in four straight seasons, Atletico was eliminated early for the second consecutive year.

"Atletico were a hard team, but we were strong too".

No matter the circumstances and no matter the players, Simeone's teams will always have a defensive-minded footprint. "All the boys showed their maturity, putting in a great performance". I wanted to us play like that also in the first leg, but then I changed something and it didn't go the right way.

Atletico were made to pay soon after the restart as Juventus and Ronaldo netted their second of the evening, with the forward's towering header going inches over the line despite the best efforts of Oblak.

Ronaldo inspired the Italians to a stunning fightback with two towering headers and a nerveless late penalty, which sealed a 3-0 win on the night after they lost the first leg 2-0 in Madrid.

"Tonight we were lucid, there was the risk of having a hysterical match, as if everything had to be done in 10 minutes", he added.

Juventus signed 34-year-old Ronaldo last summer from Real Madrid for €100-million in order to make the difference on the continent for the Italian champions, who have not won the Champions League since 1996 and have finished runners-up twice in the past four seasons.

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. He now has the Champions League records for the most goals, most assists, most penalties, most free-kicks an the most goals in the knockout rounds.

Defensive specialists Atletico held off the Juventus pressure until the 27th minute, when Ronaldo met a pin-point Bernardeschi cross to head home the opener. "We didn't have many chances apart from (Alvaro) Morata's header". "They were just better than us and we have to congratulate them".
