Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has expressed confidence that his side will beat Atletico Madrid in tonight’s Champions League round of 16 second-leg clash at the Allianz Stadium.

Juventus head to the game following a 2-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid in the first-leg encounter played last month.

Ronaldo has now said that the Old Lady are ready for the clash against Atletico in Turin, adding that Diego Simeone’s men are a strong team.

“Everyone knows that they are a strong team, they defend very well, they don’t take a lot of risks and they play on the counter-attack,” Ronaldo told Juventus TV.

“But we are ready, and we will do everything we can to beat them.”

Ronaldo added:

“I have no secrets, just my dedication and my passion for this sport, I love to play football more than anything else.

“I’ve enjoyed myself in Portugal, England, and Spain and I am now doing so in Italy. For me, it’s a pleasure to score goals and to help my team win. I’m happy.”
