The Portuguese once again stepped up when it mattered as he netted a hat-trick without reply to overturn Atletico’s 2-0 lead from the first leg.
Ronaldo is targeting his fourth consecutive Champions League title and Juventus’ first European Cup since 1996.
The 34-year-old won the competition four times in total with Real Madrid, adding to the one he won while at Manchester United.
Patrice Evra played alongside him in 2008 as United beat Chelsea on penalties.
The former left-back has revealed the texts he exchanged with Ronaldo in the build-up to Juve’s historical win.
Evra, who also played for Juventus during his career, begged his old team-mate to get the job done.
And Ronaldo replied in typical fashion, promising he would smash his former rivals.
The pair’s secret texts come amid news that:
“Home we smash them.”

Evra posted a screenshot of the conversation on Instagram and United fans will love the passion both of their players still share for the competition.
After Ronaldo’s promise, Evra replied: “Viva Ronaldo”, before the forward hit back with a selfie.
Ronaldo’s stunning performance has reignited the eternal debate over whether he is better than Lionel Messi.
And Diego Maradona thinks he is.
“There are some players that are touched by a magic wand,” he told Marca.
“We Argentinians love Messi and we’re proud that he didn’t leave us for the Spaniards.
“But the other is a beast.
“Ronaldo is pure power and now is also a wizard.”
