Cristiano Ronaldo scored the winner against Atalanta in Manchester United’s last Champions League outing at Old Trafford two weeks ago, with his side winning 3-2 after being 2-0 down. And in the return fixture in Bergamo on Tuesday night, the Portugal star was booed on his first return to Italy since he left Juventus in the summer.
After being 2-0 down at home to Gianpiero Gasperini’s men, Ronaldo finished the comeback with a superb header in the dying embers of the game.
His big-match mentality has given him a platform to succeed throughout his entire career, and he will look to do the same again tonight to put La Dea to the sword.
Having scored four goals in just seven games against the Bergamo-based outfit, fans will not be looking forward to the Portugal star facing their side.
And the home crowd at the Gewiss Stadium booed in unison as he entered the pitch to warm up.
