Allegri Unsurprised With Ronaldo Heroics In Amsterdam


Juventus manager Maximiliano Allegri was not surprised with the output of star player Cristiano Ronaldo who made a scoring return to the team during their quarterfinal tie with Dutch Eredivisie giants Ajax Amsterdam in the Champions League.

Ronaldo had missed the last three games for Juventus in the league after he returned to the club with a hamstring injury following the March international break.

The former Manchester United star sustained the injury in the colours of the Portuguese national team in their UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier with Serbia at home which ended in a 1-1 draw.

He made his return to action with Juventus against Dutch giants Ajax and he marked with a goal.

The 34-year-old gave the Italian champions the lead on the stroke of halftime off an assist from Joao Cancelo.

The hosts cancelled out the opening goal from Ronaldo at the start of the second half through Brazilian forward David Neres.

Both sides will meet again for the second leg at the Juventus Stadium on Tuesday night.

Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored 25 goals in all competitions with his latest strike against Ajax which took his Champions League tally to a record 125 goals.

The former Real Madrid and Manchester United would be hoping that he can fire Juventus past Ajax in the second leg.
