Juventus Stadium opened its doors to receive Dynamo Kyiv for the penultimate Group Stage match. We have the player ratings for you.
Juventus faced Dynamo Kyiv tonight at Allianz Stadium in Turin with Cristiano Ronaldo inside the starting eleven. Unlike Barcelona, the Bianconeri decided to use their best player from the start. It’s already been discussed that Cristiano Ronaldo tends to improve all his teammates when he is on the pitch.
This is exactly what happened this evening. Juventus needed a victory in order to play the last game of the group stage against FC Barcelona for the top spot on the table. Federico Chiesa opened the scoreboard with an impressive header after a clinical cross from Sandro. With a 1-0 result, both sides went to half-time to rest but still the second half left to play.
Ronaldo steals Morata’s goal.
After the break, Cristiano Ronaldo quickly got his goal and made history by scoring his 750th. This leaves him only 17 goals away from King Pele as the all-time top scorer in football history. During the chance where he scored, Ronaldo stole the goal from Alvaro Morata after the Spaniard sent his shot on target.
Regardless of what happened, Morata still had a chance to score his own goal to give Juventus a perfect end of the match. All three attacking players scored goals this evening, Ronaldo included.
