Video: Cristiano Ronaldo bounces back from midweek disappointment with powerful header for Juventus away at Cagliari

It’s not a rabona, but Cristiano Ronaldo has opened the scoring for Juventus away at Cagliari this afternoon.

After a bitterly disappointing result midweek in the Champions League, Juve can give their full focus to the task at hand in Serie A.

With Inter Milan running rampant at the top of the table, Juventus’ extraordinary run of title wins is in danger of coming to an end.

Andrea Pirlo doesn’t want to be the man responsible for that happening, neither does Cristiano Ronaldo – with the latter springing into action to keep The Old Lady’s hopes alive.

Andrea Pirlo is at risk of tainting his Juventus legacy.

There was nothing flash about this one from Ronaldo, no attempt to outdo Erik Lamela’s rabona effort in today’s North London derby, but it was a powerful header, and one which could have real significance for Juve.
