Juventus are through to the Champions League knockout stage following their late win at Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow but that victory was somewhat overshadowed by the controversy of the first goal of the game.

Cristiano Ronaldo hit a long free-kick which was spilled by Lokomotiv Moscow goalkeeper Guilherme before Aaron Ramsey tapped the ball into the net when it appears the ball was destined for the back of the net.

The former Manchester United attacker could have set a new Champions League record if the opening goal was not awarded to ex-Arsenal midfielder Ramsey.

Ronaldo would have set a new record of scoring against 34 different teams on the Champions League stage.

The Portuguese national team captain is level with Real Madrid legend Raul Gonzalez and main rival Lionel Messi (33 teams).

Aaron Ramsey gave Juventus the lead after three minutes before the hosts scored the equalizer through Aleksei Miranchuk nine minutes later.

Lokomotiv Moscow thought they had gotten a draw against the Italian champions until second-half substitute Douglas Costa won the game for the visitors in added time.

The goal from Douglas Costa gave Juventus a 2-1 win to make it their victories and one draw from four games.

The win also confirmed their spot in the last 16.
