Manchester United were rescued by Cristiano Ronaldo yet again this evening as the five-time Ballon d’Or winner smashed in a late volley to salvage a draw for the Red Devils against Atalanta.
Having already provided Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side with a fighting chance on the stroke of halftime by rounding off a silky team move, Ronaldo chased the ball relentlessly in the 91st minute of the tie.
Ronaldo dribbled around the area and it looked like United had been dispossessed but Mason Greenwood kept the ball in their court and then sprang into action to show his quality.
With the ball floating in the air, the 20-year-old managed to flick it across to Ronaldo, who drilled the ball into the bottom corner with a lovely volley from the edge of the area.
No way Ronaldo! ???
How does he keep on doing this!

Ronaldo has now returned nine goals in 11 appearances since he returned to Old Trafford this summer, proving that he’s as clutch and reliable in the big moments as ever this evening.
