Whenever you’re up against Juventus, you know for a very fact that the one man that can devastate your defense line is Cristiano Ronaldo. However, if you have the astronomical luck of Sassuolo, you can secure a 2-2 draw right at the Allianz stadium, because the Old Lady talisman will defend your goal!
Today’s Serie A home fixture was expected to be a walk in the park win for the defending champions. Although the Neroverdi were up ahead 2-1 midway of the game, the Portuguese forward converted a spot kick successfully in the 68th minute. And just a minute after, the 34 year old blocked Paulo Dybala’s shot from ending up behind the net.

Higuaín’s sprint into the box ended in a calculated pass to the Argentine attacker, who’s calculated shot right through the Sassuolo defense didn’t end up being the match winner, it deflected from the legs of an unsuspecting Ronaldo.
This unexpected and clumsy mistake from the former Manchester United and Real Madrid striker has costed the Bianconeri to lose two points from the match, and also the top spot, which is now occupied by rivals Inter Milan, thanks to their 2-1 win over SPAL.
