The Noise When Cristiano Ronaldo Entered The Juventus Dressing Room
He only joined the club in July last year, but it hasn’t taken long for Cristiano Ronaldo to enter Juventus‘ history books after the hat-trick he predicted ahead of last night’s Champions League second leg came to life on a special night in Turin.
The 34-year-old, who became the first player in history to score 125 UEFA club competition goals, netted three times against Atletico, which means he has now been involved in an incredible 76 Champions League knockout goals in 77 games.
Of course, all of the above stats prove his impact on the pitch, but Ronaldo’s influence off it is just as important.
Just check out the reaction when the five time Ballon s’Or winner enters the Juventus dressing room for the first time after his heroics in the Allianz.
He is met with a thunderous cheer; a heroes welcome for a true legend of the game.
As mentioned earlier, Ronaldo made a bold prediction ahead of kick-off on Tuesday night.
Despite his side being 2-0 down thanks to goals from Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin, the Juventus forward has repeatedly told those closest to him that he believes his side will progress.
In fact, he told friends and family that he will score a hat-trick against the La Liga side on Tuesday night, according to Spanish publication Marca.
Cristiano’s record against Atletico in Champions League football is certainly impressive.
He has now scored 24 goals in 33 career appearances against Diego Simeone’s side, but can he produce the goods in the coming Champions League stages?
