Juventus thought they had taken the lead less than three minutes into the game but VAR confirmed that Ronaldo had fouled Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak before Giorgio Chiellini fired in the rebound. This is Cristiano Ronaldo, after all.
Ronaldo to score two or more goals - was 4/1, now 9/2. And while that is a respectable tally by all accounts, it doesn't hold a candle to his extraordinary goal scoring feats of 450 goals in 438 games at Real Madrid. They will have to bring the fight to Atletico in the second leg but, unfortunately, that's precisely Atletico's bag, even without the suspended Diego Costa. Let us know in the comments section below.
Thirteen of 16 teams (81.3%) have advanced when taking a 2-0 lead on the road for a second leg.
That miss was punished four minutes after the restart when goal-line technology ruled Oblak failed to keep out another Ronaldo header, Joao Cancelo this time providing the cross.
Ronaldo is a modern day Champions League god, and owns a bunch of impressive records.
While another said: "CR7 the best".
CR7 has scored 22 goals in 32 career games against Atleti, constantly a thorn in the side of Los Rojiblancos.
"You can't just talk about Ronaldo, Juventus are a great team with top players who are used to fighting important battles and are very strong in defence", said Simeone, who insisted there were no favourites despite his team's clear advantage. "We played very well at the Wanda Metropolitano and come here convinced we can put in a similar performance, but have to give our all".
