Late Ronaldo goal salvages a vital point for Manchester United in the Champions League

Cristiano Ronaldo’s brace against Atalanta in the UEFA Champions League return match saw him smash a number of records, including Ruud Van Nistelrooy’s Manchester United record, which had stood for over 18 years.

Ronaldo is the first Red Devils player to score in four consecutive Champions League games since 2003. It’s a fantastic record because no one had managed to equal it before Ronaldo returned to United, and he shattered it in his first season back as a Manchester United player, and he now has a chance to break it and set a new one when United meet Villarreal in the coming weeks.

Before the game against Atalanta, the Manchester United great had just earned the club’s player of the month award for October, and his performance last night demonstrates why he may win it again in November.
