Partey ineligible for Atletico clash against Juventus

TURIN Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo scores during the second leg of their Champions League round-of-16 tie against Atletico Madrid at the Allianz Stadium.—AP Champions League Round of 16: Overwhelming Support for Juventus to Beat Atletico Madrid

The Serie A side bombarded the Atletico area with crosses but made little headway against a packed defence until Federico Bernardeschi switched to the left and floated a cross to the far post where Ronaldo outjumped Juanfran to head in.

Ronaldo, jeered almost every time he touched the ball, had a quiet performance in his first match in the Spanish capital since leaving Real Madrid last summer.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid star, who has scored a staggering 697 goals in 984 games during his career to date, told Juventus TV: "I have no secrets, just my dedication and my passion for this sport, I love to play football more than anything else".

Juve thought they had scored an early goal when Giorgio Chiellini struck from close range, only for referee Bjorn Kuipers to give a foul for Ronaldo's challenge on goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

Ronaldo is a modern day Champions League god, and owns a bunch of impressive records. Joao Cancelo put in a cross from the right and although Oblak clawed Ronaldo's header out from under his crossbar, goal-line technology confirmed the ball had crossed the line. The team is confident of playing a great game, and I am too.

It was perhaps a surprise that Diego Simeone's Atletico were overwhelmed so easily.

But Simeone is adamant his side will take nothing for granted despite their commanding advantage from the first leg. He had played with Real Madrid for almost a decade, leading the Spanish powerhouse to four Champions League titles in five seasons, including in the last three.

Atletico Madrid earned a convincing 2-0 win at home in the opening leg and are now -400 favorites to advance to the quarterfinals.
