Monstrous Ronaldo, Juve crush Simeone: Italian papers react to Juve’s win vs. Atletico

13 March at 09:30
An incredible night at the Allianz Stadium where Juventus beat Atletico Madrid 3-0 to progress to the Champions League quarter finals.

The Old Lady had never achieved something like that before. In fact, the Serie A giants had never qualified for the following stage of a European competition starting from a 2-0.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Max Allegri made possible what seemed to be not possible. The Portuguese star netted a hat-trick while Allegri tactically stunned Simeone using a 3-5-2 making the likes of Emre Can and Federico Bernardeschi one of his keys to overtake the Colchoneros.

A historical night in Turin that Italian papers celebrate in their front pages: “Martians”, writes Tuttosport, while Il Corriere dello sport focuses on the monstrous Cristiano Ronaldo. “The wrath of God”, writes La Gazzetta dello Sport.
