Cristiano Ronaldo Mocks Diego Simeone’s Celebration Dance & Fans Go Wild

Cristiano Ronaldo Mocks Diego Simeone’s Celebration Dance & Fans Go Wild

The forward that they were facing, Cristiano Ronaldo, was someone they knew well and, once again, it was the Champions League record-breaker who did all the damage.

Talk in the Italian media of the season being considered a failure in the event of an elimination from the Champions League in the last 16 - despite signing Ronaldo in the summer - had been doing the rounds ever since Juve were beaten in Madrid.

The Spaniards had survived an early scare when Giorgio Chiellini's goal was disallowed after a VAR review. Diego had made the same gesture when his team beat Juventus in late February, so Cristiano got the last laugh, as well as the honor of knocking Atletico out and moving his team on to the Champions League quarterfinals.

Ronaldo, jeered almost every time he touched the ball, had a quiet performance in his first match in the Spanish capital since leaving Real Madrid last summer.

He continued: "Rather than express the usual ritual contrition, how about this: I'm on television every weeknight for an hour". UltraViolet argued that Carlson's comments showed extreme sexism and that he defended domestic abusers and child rapists.

It finished 3-2 on aggregate.

That became more likely soon after the restart when Ronaldo headed in his second. The home fans erupted on the final whistle and the players rushed to Ronaldo. Oblak appeared to claw his effort off the line before goal-line technology alerted referee Bjorn Kuipers that the goal was good by a matter of inches.

The goal to seal Ronaldo's hat-trick came from the spot after Juve were awarded an 86th minute penalty after Federico Bernadeschi was felled inside the area. He had played with Real Madrid for almost a decade, leading the Spanish powerhouse to four Champions League titles in five seasons, including in the last three.
