Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo once again proved to be their key man as he scored yet another goal in their 1-1 draw with Lazio.

Ronaldo only returned to the Bianconeri starting XI in the midweek Champions League victory over Ferencvaros after a spell in isolation with Coronavirus.

The Portuguese attacker looked to have given Juventus a vital win in Rome but, after he was taken off with 15 minutes remaining, Andrea Pirlo's men allowed Felipe Caicedo to grab an equaliser deep into stoppage time.

📷 Ronaldo: Match Snapshot

Ronaldo enjoyed an outstanding first half against Lazio. Not only did he score the opening goal, he went close on three other occasions. He fired just wide, curled against the post and was also denied by a fine save from a free kick.

⏱️ 15' Ronaldo broke the deadlock from close range after 15 minutes. Juan Cuadrado was released down the right-hand side and crossed the ball across the six-yard box for Ronaldo to turn home home.

Ronaldo: What Next?

Ronaldo was hobbling slightly when he came off the pitch on 76 minutes and was seen applying an ice-pack to his foot on the bench. Assuming the injury is nothing serious, he will now go away with Portugal for international duty in the UEFA Nations League. Portugal play France and Croatia, as well as a friendly against Andorra.
