Cristiano Ronaldo Showed His Playmaking Abilities Are Slept On With Superb Moment Against AC Milan
Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably the greatest goalscorer ever to play the beautiful game but there's so much more to his game than putting the ball in the back of the net.
And the five-time Ballon d'Or winner proved that last night with a superb defence-splitting pass in the 3-1 win over AC Milan.
Ronaldo wasn't on the scoresheet but should have had an assist to his name in the 70th men when he showed his underrated playmaking abilities.
After cutting in down the left flank, the Portuguese superstar picked out teammate Weston McKennie's run from deep in exquisite fashion.

McKennie would make amends moments later though as he notched Juve's third goal in the top of the table clash at the San Siro.
Ronaldo wasn't able to add to his incredible tally of 758 career goals following his brace against Udinese but his statistics from his latest outing are very impressive nonetheless.
The aforementioned piece of play from Ronaldo was his one big chance created, while he also had three key passes and complete 100 per cent of his dribbles and 94 per cent of his passes.
