Portuguese player, Christiano Roanaldo has became the first ever player to win 100 games in UEFA Champions League.
Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri spoked about the impact Ronaldo was having on the Italian champions.
Ronaldo gives us a sense of security and confidence, the team is essentially the same as last season. We’ve grown, become faster in playing the ball, but then of course, there is Cristiano Ronaldo.”
Christiano joined Juventus last summer from Real Madrid and is now targeting a sixth Champions League title to add to his four with Madrid and one with Manchester United.
In Tuesdays match, CR7 had a key role against Valencia providing the assist on 59 minutes which Croatian Mario Mandzukic tapped in for his third goal in as many matches. Juventus had needed just a point to ensure qualification.
Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini said about the win:
You can see how united we are including the forwards. All three of them – Ronaldo, Mandzukic and Dybala, really put themselves about today. If we scrap like that, with the skill we have in the side, it makes everything much easier.”
The Italian team is looking forward for their third European title and first since 1995. Last season they were evaded in the quarter-finals to Ronaldo’s Real Madrid.
