Griezmann hails Ronaldo as his hatrick sends Atletico out of Champions League

Antoine Griezmann has hailed Cristiano Ronaldo’s impact after his hat-trick secured Juventus’ place in the Champions League quarter-finals as his side, Atletico Madrid crashed out of the competition.

Atletico had a 2-0 advantage from the first leg but Ronaldo struck three times in Turin to dump Diego Simeone’s side out of the Champions League.

Griezmann while reacting to their defeat said:

‘Cristiano has made the difference to every team he’s played in, he is a great player,’ Griezmann said

‘In the first leg he did not have any chances, he had three today and scored three.

‘We didn’t play our game, we chose the wrong day to screw it up.

‘Everyone is annoyed, I’m the first one, I feel guilty because I didn’t make a difference like I did in the first leg. I didn’t do that today.
