A couple of days ago, the world witnessed something spectacular when the Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo absolutely dismantled Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid in a Round of 16 match up of the 2019 UEFA Champions League.March 12, 2019
With the help of left-winger Federico Bernardeschi's relentless attack against his Spanish opponents, Ronaldo took charge of ensuring his Juventus a berth in the quarter finals of the UCL as he successfully finished a hat-trick which comprised of two headers and a perfect penalty shot to the bottom corner of the goal following Angel Correa's clumsily pushing Bernardeschi to the ground inside the box.
It was a 'Do or Die' situation for Juve who trailed Atleti 0-2 on aggregate after a debacle of a match in the first leg and boy did Ronaldo deliver in the clutch.
Never the one to forget an insult, Ronaldo even made sure to remind Atletico boss, Simeone who the real man is, as he stole the Argentine's notorious 'cojones' celebration after scoring the penalty in the second half. The celebration might lead the Juve star into some major trouble but that's a story for another day.March 12, 2019
What we must focus on is the fact that the 34-year-old legend predicted such a performance days ahead of the face-off.
According to an instagram post put up by French footballer Patrice Evra who had the pleasure of playing by Ronaldo's side during his Manchester United days, the five-time Ballon d'Or holder called out 'smashing' Atletico in a WhatsApp chat which took place five days ahead of the scheduled clash.View this post on Instagram

“Behind the scenes... these are messages between me and @cristiano 5 days before the massive comeback!!! This just shows you the confidence, the anger, the determination from the best player in the world we should thank cricri mummy and daddy and of course god for giving to us that nice man and unbelievable player,” Evra captioned the post.
“Every big occasion with big pressure my brother always proves he is the man !!! Soo please don't be jealous I just wanna share and if you don't agree I can't do anything for you ...enjoy your life but you have to recognise he is simply the best of the best and don't try to tap the screen for his number.”
Maybe Ronaldo IS God. Who knows?
