Andrea Pirlo: Juventus 'Didn't Want To Play' Atletico Madrid

Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira

Ronaldo caused a stir following Atletico's 2-0 win over Juventus on Wednesday night, when he signalled to the home fans that he had won the competition five times, whilst Atletico have yet to win the trophy. Antoine Griezmann had hit the crossbar while VAR twice intervened, correctly, in Juve's favour, cancelling a first-half penalty for a foul on Diego Costa and then ruling out an Alvaro Morata header shortly before Gimenez struck.

Central defender Jose Maria Gimenez opened the scoring in the 78th minute before Diego Godin added a second five minutes from time.

Simeone pointed out that he had celebrated in a similar fashion during his playing days but apologised to anyone who may have been offended.

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone expects his side to "suffer" in Turin after a promising first-leg result.

"His gesture was due to a moment of great tension, I understand and do not condemn him".

During the game, Ronaldo responded to boos from the Atletico fans by showing five fingers to the crowd. "It wasn't aimed at the other team, I was turning towards our own supporters".

Chelsea have also been linked with the World Cup victor but the opportunity to work with Ronaldo once again may be too good to pass up for the management maestro that is Zinedine Zidane. As the minutes passed we felt stronger, were making chances, and took two to get the victory against a very strong opponent.

Manager Max Allegri came under fire for his tactics with Atleti the much better side, specifically in the second half, but the Italian was in bullish mood for the second leg, saying, "The second half was ugly, as we made the mistake of following their lead. And this match will be useful looking forward to the second leg".
