Cristiano Ronaldo believes Juventus are ready to bounce back from their 2-0 first leg defeat away to Atletico Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League round-of-16 tie in Turin.

Juve have won three Serie A matches since they suffered defeat at the Wanda Metropolitano on a night when Ronaldo failed to shine against a club he knows well from his nine seasons in LaLiga with Real Madrid.

“These are the great nights, the fantastic ones: the Champions League nights,” Ronaldo told the Juventus’ official website ahead of Tuesday’s clash.

“The team is confident of playing a great game and I am too. We are ready to experience a special night, both on the field and in the stands.

“To the fans I say: think positive, let’s believe. It’s possible, but we need your help, because we’re going to do our job on the pitch and we need your support.”

Meanwhile, Atletico are second in LaLiga, seven points behind leaders Barcelona, but they are in excellent form as they push for silverware at home and in Europe.

Diego Simeone’s side have claimed victories over Villarreal, Real Sociedad and Leganes without conceding a goal since their first-leg win against Juventus.

Ronaldo insists his team-mates would go into the game undaunted.

“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, but we are ready, and we will do everything we can to beat them,” Rinaldo said.

“The fine details will make the difference, and we want to win and qualify for the quarter-finals.”

“Football is like this, we didn’t expect to lose the first leg 2-0, but anything can happen, and we want to give a great response in our home, in front of our fans.”

“We are having an excellent season and we now have two objectives: Serie A and the Champions League.”
