Former Juventus midfielder Sunday Oliseh is raving about Cristiano Ronaldo after scoring a hat-trick that handed the Serie A side a 3-0 win over Atletico Madrid.

Following a 2-0 loss to Diego Simeone's men in Madrid a fortnight ago, Ronaldo dominated Tuesday's Uefa Champions League fixture to send Juventus to the quarter-finals with a 3-2 aggregate win.

The 34-year-old opened the scoring with a thumping header in the 27th minute and later doubled the lead three minutes into the second half before completing the comeback from the penalty spot in the 86th minute.

Astonished by the forward's performance in the Allianz Stadium, the ex-Nigeria international who had a brief stint in Turin during the 1999-2000 season is full of praise for the five-time Ballon d'Or winner and team's overall display.

"Are there still worthy superlatives to qualify this alien of a footballer in Cristiano Ronaldo? Juventus qualifies thanks to his three goals and an exceptional well-prepared team work vs. Atletico Madrid," Oliseh tweeted.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is unbelievable. 34 years old and still arguably the world's best? Phenomenal"
