Fans Think Cristiano Ronaldo Called For Offside On Juventus Winner
Cristiano Ronaldo didn't get on the scoresheet in the Champions League on Tuesday and he even tried to stop his teammates goal from counting by calling for offside, according to some fans.
Paulo Dybala was the hero for Juventus as they came back from 1-0 down to beat Lokomotiv Moscow 2-1, thanks to two late goals from the Argentina forward.
The winner came after Alex Sandro's strike was parried by the Lokomotiv goalkeeper. Ronaldo was actually in an offside position and made a move towards the ball initially, before Dybala got their first, and to some it looked like the five time Ballon d'Or winner raised his hand to ask for offside.

It does look like the 34-year-old is celebrating his teammates goal but he certainly couldn't have been much less muted with his celebration.
After scoring the winner Dybala slid into the corner to celebrate wildly and was soon joined by several teammates but the man who was closest to him when he scored was about seventh in line to join in.
It isn't the first time that the former Manchester United winger has been criticised for not celebrating his teammates goals.
At one point during his time in Spain he looked annoyed whenever Gareth Bale scored for Real Madrid rather than him.
Whether he was annoyed or not at his teammate scoring on Tuesday it was a good comeback for the Old Lady and kept them top of Group D, ahead of Atletico Madrid, after three games.
