Cristiano Ronaldo scored his eighth Champions League hat-trick as Juventus eliminated Atletico Madrid.

Cristiano Ronaldo equalled Lionel Messi's Champions League record after scoring his eighth hat-trick in the competition. Ronaldo moved level with Barcelona foe Messi following his three-goal haul in Turin, where Juventus completed a stunning comeback to eliminate Atletico Madrid 3-2 on aggregate en route to the quarter-finals.

Messi had broken the tie with Ronaldo during Barca's 4-0 rout of PSV in September but the Juventus star equalled the feat on Tuesday. Juve lost the opening leg of the last-16 tie against Atletico in Madrid but five-time Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldo led the Italian champions to the quarters following their 3-0 victory.

Ronaldo set the tone with his 27th-minute opener before heading past Jan Oblak again four minutes into the second half. The 34-year-old then completed the fightback from the penalty spot with four minutes remaining – taking his goals tally in the Champions League to 124 in 160 appearances.
