Mystic Ronaldo predicted Champions League hat-trick
Cristiano Ronaldo predicted his hat-trick against Atletico Madrid prior to the Champions League second leg on Tuesday evening, according to Marca.
The Portuguese international hit a historic hat-trick to complete a sensational comeback in the last 16 of the Champions League for Juventus.
The 34-year-old delivered on his own prediction and rounded off his hat-trick in the 86th minute with a decisive penalty to send Juve through to the quarter-final stage of the elite European competition.
Following the match, the five-time Champions League winner was reminded by the media that the Bianconeri had never progressed after losing the first leg of a Champions League away tie 2-0.
He replied, "Maybe that's why Juventus signed me".
The draw for the quarter-finals of the Champions League is on Friday 15 March.
