It was another Champions League masterclass from Cristiano Ronaldo on Tuesday night.

The Juventus star single-handedly guided his team into the last eight of the Champions League by scoring a hat-trick to stun Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.

Trailing 2-0 from the first leg, Juventus needed their record signing to come up with a box office performance and that he did. 

Ronaldo has now scored seven goals in his past six UEFA competition meetings with Atletico Madrid though they are not Ronaldo's favourite opponents. We have compiled a quiz charting all the teams that Ronaldo has scored against.

Before last night's game, Ronaldo had scored just once in 389 minutes of European football for his new club. Coincidentally, Ronaldo has scored more goals against Juventus than any other side - there's one of the answers for you.

Ronaldo also scored from the penalty spot last night - his 16th spot kick in UEFA competitions.

Last night, Ronaldo faced the prospect of his first Champions League exit in four seasons - the dream of lifting the famous trophy for the fourth successive season was hanging by a thread.

Ronaldo's stats in the Champions League are simply incredible. He is the competition's leading scorer with 124 goals in only 160 matches.  

On Tuesday, he became the first player in history to score 125 UEFA club competition goals (now has 126). He has also been involved in 76 Champions League knockout goals in 77 games.  

Ronaldo is the only player to score in three Champions League Finals and also holds the record for scoring in all six Champions League group games.  

He has failed to score against: Aalborg, Barcelona, Benfica, Celtic, Dinamo Bucharest, Dinamo Zagreb, Fenerbache, Legia, Lille, Napoli, Panathinaikos, Partizan, Rangers, Sparta Prague, Stuttgart, Valencia, Villareal, Young Boys.
