Cristiano Ronaldo did not disappoint his fans who believed in the Portuguese to turn the tides against Atletico Madrid at the Allianz Stadium two days back. The former Real Madrid talisman netted three goals in the second leg of the Round of 16 tie which saw Juventus progress to the quarter-finals.
- Ronaldo scored two headers and one spot-kick in the match.
- The Portuguese also stole Atletico boss Diego Simeone’s notorious ‘cojones’ celebration after scoring the penalty in the second half.
- But what many of us don’t know is that Ronaldo predicted smashing Atletico at home in a WhatsApp chat.
- The chat was uploaded as an Instagram post by Patrice Evra, who was in conversation with the 34-year-old when Ronaldo predicted the outcome of the second leg.
- The WhatsApp chat took place five days ahead of the clash.
Now this just proves the confidence Ronaldo has and we can’t help but salute the legend.
