Before Juventus took on Atletico Madrid in the second leg of their UCL round of 16 tie earlier this week, Ronaldo issued a rallying cry to the Italian club's fans, insisting they must believe the team can overturn the 2-0 deficit from the first leg.

The Bianconeri did exactly that thanks to Ronaldo's incredible hat-trick in their 3-0 win over Los Rojiblancos, something Maradona has since admitted he was very impressed by.
