If Atletico Madrid score in the second leg, Juventus will be required to score at least four goals and would need to win by at least a three-goal margin to advance. Can Cristiano Ronaldo inspire Juve or will Atletico hold on to book their place in the quarters?
Ronaldo to score two or more goals - was 4/1, now 9/2. Atletico Madrid must be sick to the back teeth of playing against him and it appears the Portuguese enjoys playing against Real Madrid's city rivals. It resulted in a clumsy clip of the heels by Angel Correa in the Atletico box, a challenge typical of a forward trying to dig in and defend, the outcome never in doubt.
The Spaniards had survived an early scare when Giorgio Chiellini's goal was disallowed after a VAR review. Ronaldo, nearly an art installation piece of hypertension and muscle at this point, didn't need a second invitation to win the header by liquidating and then consuming the hapless Juanfran, out of position at left back, like a protein shake.
The Portugal worldwide forward's goals took the Bianconeri into the quarterfinals and kept him in the hunt for a sixth Champions League title - a fourth in a row - and he reflected on a "magic" night.

While another said: "CR7 the best".
"You can't just talk about Ronaldo, Juventus are a great team with top players who are used to fighting important battles and are very strong in defence", said Simeone, who insisted there were no favourites despite his team's clear advantage.
Juve are yet to lose in 27 league games to date this season, and the defeat in Madrid came amid a run of five successive domestic victories.
Ronaldo went close again shortly before halftime when he again outjumped everyone but headed Leonardo Spinazzola's cross wide of the right post.
