Ronaldo Riles Up Atletico Fans With Controversial Gesture

Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who has faced Atletico Madrid many times in his career, could not resist a sly dig at the home crowd with a controversial gesture during his side’s 2-0 loss in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night.

Click through the gallery to see some highlights of the game.

The Portuguese forward has only faced FC Barcelona - 31 times - more often than the Rojiblancos.

Wednesday’s clash was his 30th appearance against Atletico, and he was welcomed with whistles by the home fans at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Ronaldo, though, could not resist a response to the jeers, showing the home crowd five fingers, with many suggesting it was to remind them that he has won five UEFA Champions League titles already.

Atletico is one of Ronaldo’s favourite victims, with the 34-year-old having netted 22 times against them so far.

However, he will likely need to add to this tally if his side want to have a chance to progress to the next round. Juve need to overturn a 2-0 first leg defeat when they host Diego Simeone’s team at the Allianz Stadium on 12 March.
