Juve and Ronaldo were great, not taking anything away, but athletico were a bit too timid throughout, not going to miss their football though

Ronaldo has scored eight Champions League hat-tricks, the joint-most in the competition alongside Lionel Messi.

Ronaldo has been directly involved in 77 goals in 77 Champions League knockout appearances (63 goals, 14 assists).

Ronaldo has scored 124 goals in the Champions League, more than Atletico Madrid have netted in the competition (118).

Ronaldo has scored 25 goals in 33 career appearances against Atlético Madrid

Clearly some more marketing by skysports

Amazing from Ronaldo and incredible comeback from Juventus. They have to be favourites now.
I'll be suprised if they do win it, it'll depend largely on Ronaldo turning up every game

If the league wasn't so difficult I'd say City, but they'll gas on the cl

Think about it, Juve paid £99m for a 34 year old, and got the better deal. Real did it to swap their very good goalkeeper with another very good goalkeeper.

Ronaldo has gone to a brand new league, at 34 and is crushing it still, as well as pulling out a hattrick in the KO stages when his new team needed it most.

He has more goals in the KO stage than the next two (Messi+Muller) combined.

GOAT argument aside, but that's just completely unreal. He's outperforming the best players in the world (Messi aside) as a 34 year old in a brand new league while still at the top level of the game.

Then you have this guy:
Sorry boss. You all are so predictable and easy to wind up. UEFA is so overrated though. Its only about 4 or 5 leagues and even within the leagues, its only a few teams.

I did wonder if you could actually be serious, but I'm not letting a comment like that go without some ribbing, joke or not :lol:

Arsenal still on for the double.

Couldn't ask for more, tbh.
The good times are back man. How the fuck did Auba miss that chance near the end? I can understand the one just before it as he knocked it slightly too far ahead of him but the one where he completely miss kicked the ball had me shouting at the telly.

Kolasinac is a fuckin beast for the assists too. How many is that now this season.

Auba is weird as fuck. Misses too many chances to be a top striker but has the stats of a top striker. I'm guessing this has just been a weird spell in his career as I have little confidence in 30 goal a season striker.

Kolasinac is full beast. Thank fuck for him, honestly. Just get the ball to him, bomb down the wing and just whack it in low. Repeat for 90 mins.

Shady as fuck at defending though.
