Atletico Madrid are said to be still pretty angry at Cristiano Ronaldo for his 'cojones' celebration at the end of Juventus' UEFA Champions League last-16 clash in Turin.
The Portuguese hitman, who banged in a hat trick in the second leg, turned to the stands where Atletico fans were seated and made an obscene gesture, which can be called as a more exaggerated version of Diego Simeone's celebration in the first leg at the Wanda Metropolitano.
The minor difference between the two celebrations is that Simeone's celebration was directed at Atletico fans itself, something which the coach accepted too, however, Ronaldo's celebration was aimed at Los Rojiblancos' fans.

Atletico Madrid were obviously pretty disgusted with the insults to their fans or the gesture and Spanish publication AS understands that the club are considering presenting a formal complaint to UEFA.
Talking about the repercussions of this decision, if UEFA do open a case against Cristiano, he could be served a monetary fine similar to the one Simeone was handed. Additionally, Ronaldo could possibly be hit with a suspension (from one to three games) if UEFA decide that the Portuguese's behaviour could be interpreted as inciting violence.
