Ronaldo double earns 10-man Juventus a draw

Cristiano Ronaldo twice netted an equaliser to give Juventus a 2-2 draw away at Roma on Sunday evening.

A cagey opening period to the game was finally blown open on 31 minutes when the home side scored from the penalty spot.

It was Jordan Veretout who netted from 12 yards to give Paulo Fonseca’s men the lead.

But just before half time the Old Lady were back level, Cristiano Ronaldo scoring his own penalty after a handball inside the area.

Immediately after that though, Roma got themselves back in front after a stunning counter-attack that was finished by Veretout.

Andrea Pirlo’s side then went down to 10 men as Adrien Rabiot was sent off for a late challenge which saw him earn a second yellow card.

As has become customary for the Bianconeri though, it was Ronaldo who saved the day, towering above Bruno Peres and heading in an equaliser.
