Atletico Madrid 2 – Juventus 0
When Juventus signed Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, the Bianconeri had one obvious objective.
Juve have won the Serie A title for the past seven seasons, and they are on course to win the Scudetto this season too.
But that’s no longer enough. Juventus want to win the Champions League, and that’s why Ronaldo has joined.
Yet, following Juve’s last-16 first leg tie against Atletico Madrid, the Italians are in big trouble.
Atletico beat Juve 2-0 on Wednesday night in Spain.
The Rojiblancos won the match with two goals in the final 12 minutes.
Centre-halves Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin were the unlikely match-winners as they found the target for Diego Simeone’s side.
Another big game…
Another win ✅
ANOTHER clean-sheet ✅

Juanfran reacts to Cristiano Ronaldo
Atletico Madrid full-back Juanfran responded to Ronaldo’s comments.
Juanfran opted against trading insults as he told the press the following:
The comment of Cristiano, we do not feel bad about it. On the contrary, it is a reality that he has five Champions League (medals) and we have none. We hope to have someday some Champions League (success) and continue working with humility.
