The Juventus star has an excellent history of scoring against his former Madrid rivals and will be expected to step up to the plate on Tuesday evening

Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo scored an incredible hat-trick against Atletico Madrid when the two sides met up in the last 16 stage, overturning a 2-0 deficit to win the tie 3-2 on aggregate.

It was a continuation of the Portugal international's incredible record against his former city rivals, as he also possessed great form whenever he faced Atletico while he was a Real Madrid player. But how many goals has he scored against the Spanish side, and how many times has he won against them? Goal takes a look.


What is Ronaldo's record vs Atletico?


The Serie A defending champions were left stunned during their first leg visit to the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in late February when they were handed a 2-0 defeat.

Diego Simeone's side struck twice on home turf through the likes of Jose Giminez and Diego Godin, and Juventus face an uphill battle on Tuesday evening. They will need to count on the likes of Ronaldo to see off the Spanish side, but they couldn't be better equipped for the task.

Ronaldo boasts an impressive record against Atletico as a Real Madrid player. During his time at the Bernabeu, he has faced his former side's city rivals a total of 31 times across all competitions in Spain, winning on 14 occasions and drawing nine times.

"The team is confident of playing a great game and I am too," Ronaldo said before the Champions League clash. "We are ready to experience a special night, both on the field and in the stands.

"Everyone knows that they are a strong team, they defend very well, they don't take a lot of risks and they play on the counter-attack, but we are ready, and we will do everything we can to beat them. 

"Football is like this, we didn't expect to lose the first leg 2-0, but anything can happen, and we want to give a great response in our home, in front of our fans."
