Juventus' shares soared in value on Wednesday after Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat trick to overturn a two-goal deficit and eliminate Atletico Madrid in the Champions League round of 16.

The Portugal captain, who urged the Juventus home crowd to "think positive" during the build-up to the game, opened the scoring in the 27th minute, added a second just minutes after the re-start and completed his treble from the penalty spot.

The five-time Balloon d'Or victor stole in ahead of Diego Godin at the far post to direct Federico Bernardeschi's cross beyond Oblak with a powerful header for his 122nd UCL goal and 23rd against Atletico.

The Champions League's record scorer took his tally in the tournament to 124, with four goals this season.

"Juventus played in a similar way to what we did in the first leg".

After the match Juventus manager Max Allegri admitted the performance was far from flawless despite the 3-2 aggregate win.

Angry at the barracking, the Portuguese replied by holding up five fingers to remind them of the five times he had won Europe's elite club competition.

Real Madrid felt they'd got a good deal for Ronaldo when Juventus came calling in the summer. Bernardeschi also had several chances to extend Juve's lead - notably with an audacious overhead kick in the 35th minute which flew narrowly over.

Ronaldo nearly scored when his long-range free kick forced Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak to make a hard save in the ninth minute. If they win it, he'll say (maybe not publicly, but he will) it's because of the man they're calling "Mr Champions League". It was such a tough game, we fought so hard and Diego Costa worked really hard when he wasn't 100 per cent fit. Atletico is a very complicated opponent but we have proven to deserve the next round. "I'm just thinking about the 11 games that we have left", said the 46-year-old at his official unveiling.

The City boss has been an advocate of the Video Assistant Referee system but after the first four goals all went for a review, Guardiola admitted it needs to get faster.

In the other Champions League match played Tuesday night, Manchester City demolished Schalke 04, 7-0 at the Etihad.
