Remarkable Ronaldo Comments Before Atlético Madrid Tie Come To Fruition

Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick secured progression for Juventus on a stunning night of Champions League action as Atlético Madrid bowed out of Europe.

The former Real Madrid star delivered on the big stage yet again with two headers and a penalty at Juventus Stadium. It proved a bitter pill to swallow for the La Liga side, but a stunning comeback that Ronaldo remarkably predicted prior to the game.

As reported by IOL.com prior to the tie, Ronaldo had called on the Old Lady faithful to believe: "These are the great nights, the fantastic ones: the Champions League nights. The team is confident of playing a great game, and I am too. To the fans I say: think positive, let’s believe."

Spanish outfit Marca even reported that the Portuguese striker predicted his own hat-trick.

It finished 3-2 on aggregate.
