Cristiano Ronaldo and Atletico de Madrid just don’t get along. It’s always been like that, and that’s not likely to change any time soon, especially if Juventus and they keep facing each other in the UEFA Champions League.
Los Colchoneros have been one of Ronaldo’s favorite victims since his days at Real Madrid, as he’s constantly scored against them and knocked them out of the continental trophy.
So, following a difficult match for both sides, where Juventus saw his two-goal lead slip through their hands, the Portuguese superstar went at it again vs. Atletico de Madrid supporters.
Ronaldo shook off a couple of defenders and dribbled his way to the box, shooting an almost perfect strike to send the ball inches away from Jan Oblak’s left post on what could’ve been the game-winning score.

Right after the miss, the former Real Madrid superstar went on to defy some local fans by doing a controversial gesture with his hand and shaking his head, while they were booing at him and insulting him again.
So, Cristiano went on to explain his gesture in the mixed zone even before any reporter had the chance to ask what did he mean with it, stating “learn, you have to learn”.
This isn’t the first time Cristiano and Atletico de Madrid supporters have gone at it, as he was even sanctioned for making obscene gestures towards them after knocking them out of last year’s UCL.
Also, he had reminded them that he has 5 UCL trophies and they still have none, so obviously there’s a lot of heat between him and Los Colchoneros.
Ronaldo has been booed and insulted at Vicente Calderon and Wanda Metropolitano since making his move to Real Madrid, and he’s never been much of a fan favorite whenever he takes the pitch in most stadiums anyway.
