A late Cristiano Ronaldo goal salvaged a dramatic point for Manchester United on Tuesday as it drew 2-2 against Atalanta in the Champions League at the Gewiss Stadium.
Josip Iličić scored the opening goal of the game in the 12th minute. Duván Zapata’s cut back falling to the Slovenian at the edge of the box, and he swept the ball home.
Although the Italians looked more likely to double its lead, Cristiano Ronaldo equalized just on the stroke of halftime, finishing off United’s best move of the first half to restore parity.
But Zapata’s second half strike rebuilt Atalanta’s advantage and after constant United pressure, Ronaldo grabbed his second goal of the game in the 91st minute to rescue a point.
The point means with two games to go in the group, it’s evenly poised, with United top of the group and with a good chance of going through thanks largely to Ronaldo.
After the game, Ronaldo his team were “a little bit lucky” to rescue a draw against Atalanta.
“It was a difficult game, I know when we play in Bergamo it is always difficult, but we believe until the end and I am so happy,” he told BT Sport.
“We never give up, we believe until the end, it is a good result for us. The beginning was tough, we knew Atalanta would do a lot of pressure, they have a fantastic coach, when I played at Juventus they were always difficult to play against. We were a little bit lucky in the end but that is football.
“We have to still improve, we have different players, different system, we have to adapt with each other, but it will take time. we have time to improve and be better.”
