Ronaldo taunts Atletico Madrid: 'I have five Champions Leagues and Atletico has zero'

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno and Steve Nicol take Cristiano Ronaldo to task for his 'five UCL wins' taunt directed at Atletico Madrid.
The FC crew answer your tweets on the repercussions if Juventus are knocked out of the UCL by Atleti, the video replays used by VAR and more.

Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo left the Wanda Metropolitano stadium after his team's 2-0 defeat at Atletico Madrid in the Champions League round-of-16 first leg reminding everyone that he's won the European title five times while Atletico have yet to win it at all. 

Ronaldo did not stop to answer questions from the media, but as he left the mixed zone he turned to reporters and said, showing one of his hands:

"I have five Champions League and Atletico has zero. I have five, Atletico zero."

During the game, Ronaldo responded to boos from the Atletico fans by showing five fingers to the crowd.

Two of Ronaldo's Champions League trophies were won against Atletico, a 4-1 triumph in the 2013-14 campaign when he scored from the penalty spot, and a 5-3 win on penalties, one of which Ronaldo converted, in the 2015-16 campaign.

The Portugal international, who left Real Madrid after nine years last summer to join Juventus in a €100 million transfer has only scored once in five Champions League starts and endured a frustrating match -- he had seven shots but only one was on target.

"It's been a difficult night," Ronaldo wrote on Instagram. "But we have to believe until the end."

In an interview with Italian outlet CRC Radio, Atletico club president Enrique Cerezo said Ronaldo "had not won five, just three ... he did not win the two against [Atleti]. Who did? I'll talk about that later."

Atletico right-back Juanfran was not offended by Ronaldo's comments.

"It's a reality," the Spaniard told Cadena Cope postmatch. "He has five Champions Leagues and we have none. We will work with humility so that we can get one. But this doesn't take away the great game we've played."
