Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has broken silence on his side’s 2-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League round of 16 first-leg encounter on Wednesday night.
Goals from Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin gave Atletico Madrid all three points against Juventus at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

The 34-year-old on Thursday morning took to his official Twitter page, @Cristiano, to admit that Juventus had a ‘tough’ game against Atletico Madrid.
“It was a tough night. Now let #finoallafine’s think,” Ronaldo tweeted alongside a picture of Juventus squad.
Meanwhile, speaking on Ronaldo’s performance against Atletico Madrid, Juventus coach, Massimiliano Allegri told reporters at post-match: “Ronaldo played a good game.
“He is confident with these kinds of matches. He was not bad at all.
“We missed all the second half as a team. And this match will be useful looking forward to the second leg.”
