Cristiano Ronaldo reaches landmark in routine Juventus win
Juventus hosted Dynamo Kyiv at the Allianz Stadium on matchday 5 of the UEFA Champions League.
With three wins from four games, Andrea Pirlo‘s side came into the game with one foot in the Round of 16
of the competition. In what was a routine win for the hosts, Cristiano Ronaldo scored yet again,
as Juventus recorded a 3-0 win to make it through to the knockout stages.
In terms of the team selection, Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to the starting XI grabbed all the headlines,
as the Juventus forward partnered Federico Chiesa and Alvaro Morata upfront. However, the game also
marked the first time a female referee took charge of a men’s UEFA Champions League game, as Stephenie
Frappart successfully officiated the European encounter in Turin.
Chiesa broke the deadlock for his side with a brilliant header, as he scored his first goal for his new club after a
big-money move in the summer.
Juventus returned the stronger of the two sides after the interval and scored twice in the second half to add gloss
to the scoreline. Cristiano Ronaldo netted the 750th goal of his professional career, while Alvaro Morata also
added to his tally to brush aside the visitors.
Here are the best tweets from the game, as Juventus recorded a routine victory and Cristiano Ronaldo made more
history in his illustrious career.
