CR7 once again decisive at the end, as in the first leg and against Villarreal. With the brace he reaches 11 goals in the Champions League after his 35th birthday, more than double those of Drogba
He always scores. In the end the difference is made by the champions. You see them, you don’t see them, they pop out of the shadows, in an instant. And they put their paw. Decisive. Cristiano Ronaldo is part of that very small elite. Not that there was a need for confirmation at 36 after a stratospheric career. But the two divine goals to the Goddess, pun intended, in the Ronaldo area, that of the first draw in the recovery of the first half, the other in the 91st minute, to put an end to the Bergamo dream. “We were lucky – said the former Juventus player to the microphones of the British broadcaster Bt Sport – But this is football. It was a very painful match but we did our job ”. Pluralis maiestatis, we add. With the two of Gewiss, he made 11 in the Champions League after having turned 35, more than double the closest “competitor”, Didier Drogba.
His is a nice vice. On the way out, he hadn’t waited for his last breath. The 3-2 at Old Trafford had put him in the 81st minute, six minutes after that of Maguire’s equal. If there can be a (slight) consolation for Gasperini, it is that CR7 does not distinguish between colors or opponents. Ask Villarreal for confirmations. In the match of 29 September, dominated by the Spaniards, the brand had arrived at minute 95, after Telles had remedied Paco Alcàcer’s goal at 60 ‘. The equation is too simple to solve: remove Cristiano and Manchester would have 7 points less. Four goals in 3 games, two wins and one draw. In fact, the shift is almost in his pocket, even if there will still be work to be done. Just for the record, Ronaldo had also scored in Bern in the first match of the group, but then it was the Young Boys who won 2-1 in full recovery, with Siebatcheu’s goal in the 95th minute. He always scores. And when he scores, he does it in his own way, never banal. Solskjaer thanks. Had he not had CR7, he would most likely have packed his bags long ago.
