Cristiano Ronaldo's phenomenal goal record against Atletico Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo's phenomenal goal record against Atletico Madrid

It's not because Zinedine Zidane has been missing for the past 10 months, although that might have something to do with it, but because they watched 50 goals a season leave last summer. Of course, things will be complicated should Atletico score an away goal, but Juventus have a risky weapon in Ronaldo when they face the Spanish side.

Juventus are running away with Serie A but come 10pm on Tuesday they could be out of the race for Champions League glory this season.

"It's harder to score in the Italian League than in the Spanish League".

No. 7 will need to showcase his A-game in this one; otherwise, he won't be bringing home a Champions League trophy for the fourth consecutive year.

"Everyone knows that they are a strong team, they defend very well, they don't take a lot of risks and they play on the counter-attack", the five-time Champions League victor added. Spanish games are more open.

Ronaldo has taken to his surroundings pretty well.

Ronaldo also compared the difficulties of goal getting in Serie A to that of the Premier League, which is widely renowned as the most competitive league to play in. They have been a welcome anti-hero in the Champions League over the last six years or so - scrapping for every goal, every point, every tie they can find - and they'll be no different in Turin tonight.

Juventus have a good chance to win the title for the first time since 1996 if they go through because Real Madrid are already out, and that's no surprise without Cristiano Ronaldo in their team. It was a simple match for Atletico Madrid as they received a goal through Saul in the 50th minute of the match.

Will Juve make it through?
