Twice penned, but still awake: Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo can still hope for the quarter-finals in the Champions League with Juventus Turin despite lightning goals at the beginning of each half.
In his Portuguese homeland, the five-time world football player with Italy’s serial champion scored a 1-2 (0-1) goal in the quarter-finals final at FC Porto, Federico Chiesa (82nd) scored an immensely important away goal late, giving Juventus a 1-0 goal in the second leg on 9 March. It didn’t look good for the uninspired Bianconeri for a long time: Mehdi Taremi put the home team in the lead after 63 seconds. After the side change, the ball rolled only 19 seconds before Moussa raised Marega.
Ronaldo (36) has won the Champions League five times in his highly successful career, including four times with Real Madrid between 2014 and 2018. Since his move to Italy, however, he has been in the quarter-finals and the quarter-finals.
