Since joining Juventus last year, Cristiano Ronaldo has invaded every single team’s back line in the Serie A, transforming himself into a complete striker, becoming a nightmare for the opposition defenders. But have you every wondered how the Bianconeri talisman would react when getting invaded? Well, yesterday’s match versus Bayer 04 Leverkusen showed his reaction.
Juventus took on the Bundesliga heavyweights in yesterday’s Group D match of the UEFA Champions League at the BayArena in Leverkusen. Following a comfortable 2-0 win over the hosts, Ronaldo was enjoying the victory with his teammates, while a spectator jumped onto the pitch.
The fan is apparently a big fan of the Portuguese superstar, and tried to get close to him to get a selfie with his phone. However, his idol didn’t receive the gesture too well.
The 34 year old was visibly annoyed as the fan tried to get a close up, and waved off the invader. It is also speculated that Ronaldo screamed at his crazy fan: “Are you crazy?”

The Old Lady’s veteran shot stopper Gianluigi Buffon prompted to the spot and tried to calm down his teammate, who almost raised a hand at the fan, and was seen holding his own neck. The stadium’s security staff arrived soon after, and escorted the invader out of the area.
While already topping their group and securing a place in the group 16 playoffs, the away win was a confidence booster after last Sunday’s loss against SS Lazio.
In the post match interview, Juventus gaffer Maurizio Sarri said: “It’s important to keep a sense of balance. We lost against Lazio, but for long periods it was one of our best games of the season.”
“It was tough tonight against a side that is doing very well in the Bundesliga this season. We held out and as soon as their tempo dropped, we stepped up to take the points.” the 60 year old Italian added.
After a goal less first half, the opening strike came in the 75th minute from Cristiano Ronaldo. Gonzalo Higuaín netted the second one in the 92nd minute.
