"It had to be a special night and it was, not just for the goals, but for the team and their incredible attitude", said Ronaldo.

Ronaldo scored a hat-trick as Juve overcame a 2-0 first leg deficit to beat Atletico Madrid 3-0 on the night to go through 3-2 on aggregate.

Cristiano Ronaldo notched a hat trick to lead Juventus 3-0 over Atletico Madrid for a 3-2 aggregate victory in their Champions League round-of-16 tie.

Atletico were also showing plenty of intent going forward with both Koke and Antoine Griezmann getting strikes away from distance, but it was not long before Juventus got the goal that they deserved. 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. "We will see what will happen", added Ronaldo, who has scored 124 goals in 160 Champions League appearances.

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

"The lads have shown great maturity", said Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri. The Italian title-holders have not won the Champions League since 1996, and have finished runners-up twice in the past four seasons.

Trump blasts California governor for halting executions
Newsom's office said he can act unilaterally because he's enacting a moratorium, not changing anyone's sentence. One in four people on death row in the United States are in California, according to the governor's office.

And five-time Ballon d'Or victor, Ronaldo, pulled out a spectacular performance as he spearheaded the attack along with Federico Bernardeschi and Mario Mandzukic.

But a Video Assistant Referee (VAR) review confirmed Ronaldo fouled goalkeeper Jan Oblak in a scramble in front of goal before defender Chiellini had finished off. A move he began from his own half with a pass to Leonardo Spinazzola down the left.

Joao Cancelo, who provided the cross for Ronaldo's second header in the 49th minute, hailed his Portugal team-mate after a thrilling tie. Juventus were awarded a penalty when Bernardeschi was pushed by Correa inside the area, and the 34-year-old stepped up to dispatch the penalty into the bottom corner.

Ronaldo has 25 goals in 33 career matches against Atletico Madrid.

"I don't think it was lack of commitment or lack of character", Simeone said.

He has also given Juventus a new focus this season as they are already practically assured of an eighth consecutive Scudetto with an 18-point advantage on their nearest rivals. "They simply played better and we have to congratulate them".
