Nothing but absolute praise for Cristiano Ronaldo’s magnificence after another superb hat-trick

Paul Moore


Prior to tonight, Atletico Madrid had conceded just four goals in their last 13 games in all competitions. Cristiano Ronaldo has managed to score a hat-trick against them…again.

Just like he did in La Liga, CR7 was Atletico’s tormentor in chief as his goals absolutely destroyed their local rivals.

Right now, the Portuguese star is the world’s best player – sorry Messi fans, the Real Madrid man deservedly won the Ballon D’or last year – and in another virtuoso performance, the former Manchester United player absolutely obliterated one of the meanest defences in Europe.

Bayern Munich felt his wrath in the last round, tonight it’s the fate of Simeone’s men.

Yes, there are question marks surrounding the first goal, but after another imperious performance, we’re left with just one question, who in their right mind has said that Ronaldo is in decline?

In the last European match at the Vicente Calderon, Atletico Madrid are facing the mother of all Champions League tasks in the second leg, how can they turn around a three goal deficit against the champions of Europe?

Right now, Real Madrid fans are probably booking their flights to Cardiff.

They know who has made the largest contribution tonight.
