Ronaldo gets high praise after helping Juventus to see off Udinese

May 2, 2021 – 9:30 p.m.

Cristiano Ronaldo saved the job for Juventus and possibly Andrea Pirlo after scoring twice to help the Bianconeri record a 2-1 comeback against Udinese.

They entered the game after Atalanta lost points to give them the chance to close the gap between them.

Five teams are vying for the last three places in the Champions League in Serie A and Juve is one of them.

The Bianconeri need to win their remaining games to secure a Champions League spot next season.

Udinese took the lead in the game and held on beyond the 80th minute.

In those moments when they were late in the game, Juve’s players would have feared the worst and Pirlo would probably have thought that today was his last day on the job.

Fortunately, Ronaldo came well for them with two late goals to turn the game around.

He was anonymous for much of the game, but that doesn’t matter now after he finally delivered and Transfer market praised him for bringing all the points home on his own.

They rated it 7/10 and said, “It just didn’t look like CR7 for about 83 minutes and then it comes back.

“He got out of the spot, but until the moment of the free kick deflected by De Paul’s elbow it had been another extremely disappointing test. Then he thanks Scuffet and Rabiot, doubling down and finding a smile again.
