Juventus vs Atletico Madrid ended 3-0 in favour of the Bianconeri following a stunning five-star performance from Cristiano Ronaldo on the night.

Then the moment of the match came when Federico Bernardeschi delivered a delicious cross into the box as Ronaldo jumped highest to head home the first goal. 1-0 to Juve.

What looked like a done and dusted contest from the first leg to Atletico, now became a fight to finish for the Old Lady.
