Ronaldo signed for Juventus for £88million as Massimiliano Allegri’s side try to win the European Cup for the first time since 1996.
The Portuguese international scored a hat-trick against Atletico Madrid in the last-16 second leg.
Ajax’s David Neres managed to cancel out Ronaldo’s goal on Wednesday as the first leg ended 1-1.
The result would have suited Juventus more as they take an away goal back to the Allianz Arena.
