Cristiano Ronaldo has lifted Juventus to another level this season.
The Italian club are running away with Serie A and are amongst the favourites to win the Champions League too.
Ronaldo's heroics in the second leg of their UCL tie vs Atletico Madrid last week proved just how much of an impact he can make.
Juve were 2-0 down after defeat in the first game and very few believed they could really turn the fixture around. Cue a masterclass from the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.
He netted a hat-trick in Turin, writing another famous night into the history books and proving once again that he's the man for the biggest occasions.

Further proof of just how much difference Ronaldo makes came a few days later when he was rested for a Serie A match against 12th placed Genoa.
The Old Lady were unbeaten in 27 matches and on for an 'Invincibles' season - but suffered a shock 2-0 defeat. You've got to wonder what a rested Ronaldo made of that result.
Evidently, he has a massive positive effect on the pitch. But according to a report from the New York Times, his presence will have a negative impact off of it this summer.
That's because issues surrounding his personal life have forced Juve to re-think their pre-season tour plans.
The NY Times writes that organisers of the International Champions Cup have decided to keep Ronaldo and his team away from the United States.
They will do so to avoid the risk of the Portuguese star being detained by authorities as part of a rape investigation, which is currently ongoing in Las Vegas.
Instead, Juventus will play their matches in the Asian version of the annual tournament and will likely be joined in China and Singapore by Manchester United and Tottenham.
