Reports in Spain claim that Ronaldo had assured friends and family that Juve would overcome a 2-0 first-leg defeat to Atletico Madrid and that he would score a hat-trick to send the Old Lady through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
But while the talent gap between them is nearly imperceptible, their public displays remain unmistakably dissimilar. "Juventus is very powerful and besides that it has Cristiano, who had a magical night with his three goals".
"What Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus did was unbelievable".
The Portuguese superstar bagged an unbelievable hat-trick to fire Juventus through to the last eight of the Champions League, just when they needed him most.
Coutinho refused to commit his long-term future to Barcelona
Lucas Tousart's effort pulled Lyon back into the tie briefly and Messi, who scored Barca's third and then created goals for Gerard Pique and Ousmane Dembele, admitted the Catalans nearly let things get away from them.
"All of the opponents are complicated", Messi added. Despite facing off directly in two league matches each season, they also met several times in other competitions and were constantly compared, week in, week out.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winners have met five times in the Champions League.
"We don't want to choose one [side] because they're all really tough", Messi said. Now, all eyes will be on Lionel Messi tonight to see if he can do something equally as mesmerising against Lyon in the last 16. Liverpool eliminated Bundesliga power Bayern Munich 3-1 to make the final cut. "[Manchester] City, Juventus, Ajax, who have a great team of kids and don't fear anything, Liverpool, who've shown they pack a punch".
