Although many had written Juve off after their 2-0 defeat to Los Rojiblancos in the first leg, Ronaldo seemingly always believed they would progress to the next round.

During the warm-up ahead of the return fixture at the Allianz Stadium, the 34-year-old was reportedly seen hyping up the home crowd in Turin, and his leadership and influence did not end there.

After the first half, with Juventus leading 1-0 courtesy of the Portugal striker, the Italian giants felt confident of grabbing a second goal, but no one appeared more certain of that than Ronaldo.

According to the Daily Mirror, before the players made their way back out on to the field for the second half, the former Real Madrid man was pictured speaking to every one of his teammates individually in the tunnel, offering them words of advice and encouragement, with images thereof emerging via Gazzetta TV, and later a video did the rounds too.

With Ronaldo being seen motivating his colleagues for the second half, he went on to score another two goals to send the Old Lady through to the quarter-finals of the competition.
