Juve ace ruled out of Atletico tie by heart problem

Share

Cristiano Ronaldo had a dismal return to Madrid as his Juventus side went down 2-0 to Atletico in the UEFA Champions League last 16.

Five minutes later, Diego Godin put the game to bed by firing home a shot from a tight angle that took a deflection off Ronaldo.

Ronaldo has only managed one goal in Europe since completing a €100million move from Real Madrid to Juve last summer and the forward's frustrations continued on Wednesday evening.

Defensive duo Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin were the unlikely goalscorers for Atletico at Wanda Metropolitano.

It was a sweet outcome for the Atleti faithful, who were on the wrong side of results against Ronaldo in the 2014 and 2016 Champions League finals.

In the last minute of the match, Raheem Sterling found himself through on goal, to slot home a victor and grab an invaluable third away goal to win the match in Gelsenkirchen and complete an heroic comeback to, perhaps, put the tie to bed in the first leg. "We have to remember we are facing a team who are very good in defence and very unsafe from set pieces and have done very well in Europe in recent years".

When you shout something abusive, even in a "funny" way, at a stand up comedian then there's a very good chance that you are about to be "destroyed" by them, as they often point out it's literally what they do for a living.
