Cristiano Ronaldo equals Lionel Messi’s hat-trick record

March 12, 2019 was “magical night” for both Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus F.C. as the Portuguese Star footballer Ronaldo hits a hat trick and equals his record with the Argentina Star Player Messi.

Before that match, Messi was the only one player who hit 8 hat-tricks in UEFA Championship League. Ronaldo who was just 1 hat-trick away from this record, had equaled it in last night match against Atletico Madrid. Only these two players hold the record of hitting eight hat-tricks in the history of the UCL.

In September 2018, Messi scored his 8th Champions League hat-tricks. Less than a year, the 34-year old forward Ronaldo has equaled the record. With the Hat-trick Ronaldo has guided Juventus to victory in the second leg of their UEFA Championships League. He is the only player to score more than two hat-tricks in the same season and this is his first hat-trick for Juventus. 

In last summer football auction, he joined Juventus from Real Madrid with a huge deal of £99.2m and becoming one of the most expensive players of all time in football history.
