No doubt, one of the most exceptional qualities of Cristiano Ronaldo is his confidence to achieve outstanding feats. A chat between Ronaldo and Evra has shown just how much belief the 35-year old Juventus forward has in his abilities.
Back in 2019, ahead of the Champions League last-16 second-leg fixture against Atletico Madrid, Juventus were at a huge disadvantage. The Serie A giants were two goals deficit behind their Spanish opponents in the doubleheader fixture having succumbed to a 2-0 first-leg defeat away from home. It meant an extra effort was needed in the reverse fixture to keep the Bianconeri alive in the competition.
Mere looking at the first-leg result, you would agree that Juve’s comeback would seem unlikely. However, Cristiano Ronaldo took it upon himself to give the fans a magical night to remember.

The five-time Champions League winner went ahead to score a hat-trick against the resilient Atletico side as the Old Lady advanced to the League quarter-finals on 3-2 aggregate.
Ronaldo and Evra have been good friends since their Manchester United days, and the former Juventus man was quick to share a conversation with Ronaldo days before the game in which he netted a hat-trick.
