Cristiano Ronaldo Scores Absolute Rocket To Bring Juventus Level Against Lyon

Cristiano Ronaldo has proven yet again that the Champions League is his competition after netting an absolute screamer against Lyon.

Juventus entered the second leg of their last 16 tie 1-0 down after defeat back in February.

The French side took the lead on the night and 2-0 on aggregate through a Memphis Depay penalty, before Ronaldo netted from the spot himself.

However, the 35-year-old brought the tie level in the second half thanks to a left footed rocket that proved too hot for Anthony Lopes to handle.

Fans have reacted to the strike and they're in awe at the five-time Ballon d'Or winner's big match mentality.






A lack of VAR was a talking point following the first half as both side's penalties were considered dubious.

Rodrigo Bentancur was judged to have fouled Houssem Aouar despite replays showing it was a perfectly fine challenge.

The referee then decided that Miralem Pjanic's free kick was handled by Depay in the wall, despite the Lyon man's hands looking like they were in a perfectly good position.


Lyon will go through on away goals as things stand but Ronaldo has given Maurizio Sarri's side a lifeline in the most remarkable way.

Do you think Juventus will complete their comeback and make it to the quarter-finals?

Let us know in the comments.
