Cristiano Ronaldo cut a controversial figure on Wednesday night. First he taunted Atletico Madrid fans on the pitch and later he continued with some provocative comments and gestures in the mixed zone.

Read: Ronaldo Riles Up Atletico Fans With Controversial Gesture

The Portuguese superstar has scored just one goal in the UEFA Champions League this season and could not prevent his side’s 2-0 loss to Atletico in their first leg of the round of 16 clash.

He already riled up the home crowd during the game, making a gesture towards the fans at the Wanda Metropolitano, before showing the same hand signal in the mixed zone.

The 34-yer-old did not stop to answer questions from the media, but turned and showed the waiting reporters five fingers before changing it to zero.

"I have five Champions League and Atletico has zero. I have five, Atletico zero," he said, as quoted by ESPN, while making the gesture.

Two of Ronaldo’s five Champions League crowns were won against Atletico, while he has only faced FC Barcelona more than the Rojiblancos in his career.

Despite his €100 million (R1.6 billion) transfer to Juventus ahead of the 2018/19 campaign, Ronaldo did not have any real impact on the game, while Atletico’s second goal was deflected by him into his side’s own net.

Juve boss Massiliano Allegri, though, insisted the superstar did not have a bad match.

"Ronaldo played a good game. He is confident with these kinds of matches,” Allegri said.

"He was not bad at all. We missed all the second half as a team. And this match will be useful looking forward to the second leg."

Juventus have the chance to overturn the 2-0 defeat when they face Diego Simeone’s side at home on 12 March.
