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.

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.
Ronaldo is unbelievable. Thanks for his late goal draw. Harry maguire should not be captain and not even be in man u x1. He is a serious error & the secrete behind man u failure so if care is not taking interm of causing too much goal cr7 may not rescue again, in my own opinion ronaldo is to play full time match. In addition our formation should always be 3-5-2 including using varane, baily and bissaka they are excellent for todays match and avoid using harry maguire by our inexperience coach because i don’t even see him as a successful manager if not ronaldo. We need experiece coach like; thomas tuchel, pep guardiola and liverpool coach soljear is not capable to defeat them at all. What man u need now is changing of manager he will continuing using harry maguire which mean ERROR +ERROR=FAILURE At the end. Up man u!
