Cristiano Ronaldo rescues Manchester United in injury time once again

Manchester United were looking down and in trouble in Bergamo until Cristiano Ronaldo popped up with a stunning strike to rescue a point and their Champions League hopes.

The Portuguese forward's late equaliser - his second of the game - is the difference between the Red Devils ending the night third and first, as they have done.

Throughout the Group F encounter, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were second best to Gian Piero Gasperini's, but, as he has been so often before, Ronaldo was the difference. Although on this occasion, that difference was between a loss which wouldn't have been undeserved and a snatched point to keep their noses in front in the group.

Twice, the home side took the lead in Italy - first through Josip Ilicic and then Duvan Zapata - but twice Ronaldo hit back, in stoppage time at the end of both halves. His first equaliser came on the end of a decent United move and the assist was a wonderfully executed backheel from compatriot Bruno Fernandes.

Then, in dramatic fashion, it was Ronaldo again who grabbed a point were it seemed like United were destined to head home with none. The 36-year-old was trying to force the issue, driving in from the left but was frustrated by the Atalanta defence but Mason Greenwood helped it back to him and he sent a fantastic low volley across goal into the bottom corner from the edge of the area.

It is remarkable how many times Ronaldo has bailed out United this season, twice in this game alone. It's surely not sustainable, but it has kept them on course for the last 16.
