Cristiano Ronaldo shines in Serie A as he help Juventus maintain their unbeaten run

Portuguese forward  Cristiano Ronaldo has stepped up when his team required him the most and delivered against all odds. And after years of popping up for his team at the much needed hour, And he does it again to salvage a 2-2 draw for his new team against Atalanta.

It was a rare occasion as Ronaldo was rested as Juventus went on to face Atalanta. With Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench, Juventus struggled to put the ball into the net as Atlanta were leading the match 2-1 for major halves of the game and Juventus were with a man less on the pitch after Rodrigo Bentancur was sent off. It was in the 65th minute when a 10-men Juventus finally turned to the saviour.

And with 13 minutes to go, Cristiano repaid their faith to salvage a 2-2 draw. It was from a corner which was going into the far post as Mario Mandzukic placed the ball into the middle only for Cristiano to make it 2-2. As usual, Cristiano put the ball into the net when it mattered.

Juventus' unbeaten streak was on the line when Cristiano came into the pitch. They are unbeaten in the Serie A thanks to Cristiano and their only defeat this season came against Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League.
