Two goals (27 and 48) and one penalty (86) from the Portuguese served Juventus to move to the quarterfinals and leave Atlético without the possibility of fighting for the final to be played on June 1 at the Metropolitan Stadium.

Ronaldo, total legend of the competition, scored his 25th goal against Atletico, reaching 125 in the Champions League, of which he is the greatest historical director and in which he has won the title in five editions (four with Real Madrid and one with Manchester). United).

Atlético, who had a good income from the first leg, showed their worst side and almost did not create danger against a Juventus that multiplied the head shots in a game that drove at a high pace and always close to the area rojiblanca.

The rojiblancos were interested in sleeping the game and Juventus shake it. The local team got away with the group of Diego Simeone, uncomfortable trying to pause the game. The first five minutes were electric for Juventus, culminated by a goal annulled Giorgio Chiellini for lack of Ronaldo Slovenian goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

With a little less anger, the local team continued to push and achieved its reward in an action that was repeated with success. Federico Bernardeschi crossed from the left and Ronaldo won the position to Juanfran on the right to finish head to the meshes. The sequence was repeated in 43, but then CR7 sent his header out. Two minutes later it was Chiellini who did give the right direction to the ball, also headed, but then Oblak intervened.

For Atletico, who had arrived for the first time on goal with a distant and powerful shot from Antoine Griezmann (24), Alvaro Morata was able to tie, which concluded with a high header a long play in which Koke served him.

Ronaldo opened the fire with an assist for the Croatian Mario Mandzukic, who did not finish (46). Then the Portuguese equalized the tie following the same scheme as in the first goal: Topped head imposing from the right in a center from the left. Oblak cleared, but goal technology warned the referee that the ball had entered.

With 2-0 against, Atlético needed to take a step forward, but Juventus prevented it by stealing the ball quickly and dictating the pace, very close to Oblak's goal, multiplying the aerial centers.

Again Mandzukic was close to the goal (74) but was unable to finish off his header on the plate on a free kick. But the clearest was on a counterattack Moise Kean, who was left alone against Oblak, but shot too crossed ( 82). The young promise of 19 years, author of a double on Friday against Udinese, had just jumped into the field. Then came the penalty of Angel Correa to Bernardeschi by pushing and the transformation of Ronaldo, who leads Juventus to quarters.
