Juventus shares soar after Champions League win against Atletico

Ronaldo's latest Champions League heroics led to a huge rise in Juventus' share price when the markets opened on Wednesday morning.

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

"This was why Juventus brought me here, to help do things that they have never done before", said Ronaldo.

Cristiano threatened twice more before half-time: a bicycle kick and another header that both went wide and the teams went to the dressing rooms with the tie still in the balance.

The financial gap between Atletico and the top European teams has been reduced significantly in recent years, and the club has gradually grown into one of the continent's main forces, providing Simeone near-perfect conditions to do his job.

The Portuguese captain netted his eighth Champions League hat-trick to draw level with Messi and to extend his record tally to 124 goals in 160 matches. "All the boys showed their maturity, putting in a great performance".

After scoring the decisive penalty four minutes from time, Ronaldo turned towards the Atletico fans and replicated Simeone's gesture after the Spaniards' 2-0 first leg win by grasping his genitals and thrusting out his groin.

Cristiano Ronaldo was the difference maker in Turin as the club moves onto the quarterfinal stage of the Champions League keeping alive Ronaldo's potential wining streak.

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. "He said he'd score three goals and he scored three goals".

Joao Cancelo, who provided the cross for Ronaldo's second header in the 49th minute, hailed his Portugal team-mate after a thrilling tie.

Stars like Antoine Griezmann and Diego Godin have stayed with the club despite big offers from rivals, and Diego Costa and Alvaro Morata have been added. 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. "Juventus played very well, we have to congratulate them".
