Atalanta 2-2 Manchester United: Cristiano Ronaldo rescues visitors


Cristiano Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo is the first player to score in four consecutive Champions League appearances for Manchester United since Ruud van Nistelrooy in April 2003

Cristiano Ronaldo once again rescued Manchester United with a sensational late goal to earn his side a draw against Atalanta that keeps them top of Champions League Group F.

The 36-year-old, who also levelled in first-half added time, volleyed in from outside the box in added time for his second of the night to earn United a crucial point in Bergamo.

Josip Ilicic opened the scoring with a low effort that squeezed under David de Gea at a vociferous Gewiss Stadium and Atalanta thought Duvan Zapata’s 56th-minute effort had won it.

Ronaldo capped a wonderful move by firing beyond goalkeeper Juan Musso for his first following a delightful Bruno Fernandes back-heel, after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had been on the back foot for much of the first half.

United were also second best after the break but Ronaldo, who scored a late winner in the reverse fixture and against Villarreal, delivered with a vital goal to keep United in pole position heading into the final two group games.
