Having scored just once in six Champions League games for his new club Juventus, the competition's all-time record scorer endeared himself to the Bianconeri faithful by scoring all three goals in the second leg of his team's Round of 16 clash with Atletico Madrid.

In the process, Juventus successfully overturned a two-goal deficit from the first leg to progress to the quarterfinals with a 3-2 aggregate win. Ronaldo, meanwhile, equaled Lionel Messi's record of eight Champions League hat-tricks.

The three-goal haul also made Ronaldo the oldest player to score a hat-trick in the competition, and the only 34-year-old player to score a Champions League hat-trick since Claudio Pizarro did so for Bayern Munich in 2012-13.

#3 Became the first player to win top-flight titles in England, Spain and Italy

In his first full season in Italy, Ronaldo played a key role for Juventus as the Bianconeri won a record-extending 8th consecutive Serie A title.

In the process, the Portugal captain became the first player to win top-flight titles in England (Manchester United), Spain (Real Madrid) and Italy.
