"Cristiano Ronaldo Was Incredible" - Lionel Messi Hails Juventus Hat-trick

Barcelona Star Lionel Messi has hailed rival Cristiano Ronaldo after his stunning performance sent Juventus through to the last eight of the Champions League.

Ronaldo put in a performance to remember on Tuesday night, as he completely turned Juventus' Champions League tie on its head at the Allianz Stadium.

Atletico led 2-0 from the first leg, thanks to goals from Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin.

But the second chapter in the tie was a completely different story, as Ronaldo dominated the usually-impenetrable Atletico defence with a stunning hat-trick.

Messi, himself scored twice last night as Barcelona thrashed Lyon 5-1 at the Camp Nou.

Speaking after the match, Messi said: 'I thought that what happened with Cristiano and Juventus was incredible.

"I thought maybe Atletico would be stronger, but Juventus overwhelmed them and Cristiano had a magical night with the three goals.'

Ronaldo, who joined The Old Lady last summer from Real Madrid in an £88million move, suggested that his side can go all the way in Europe for the first time since 2003.

“This was why Juventus brought me here, to help do things that they have never done before,” he said.

“It was always going to be a special night and it was - not only for the goals but for the team."
