Twitter Reacts As Ronaldo Ruins Juventus’ Comeback In Stunning Fashion

Twitter was left in a state of disbelief as Juventus fell just short of pulling off a frankly ridiculous upset against Real Madrid in the Champions League this evening.

Two nights, two ridiculous comebacks from Italian sides against Spanish opposition.

That would have made for one helluva headline had Cristiano Ronaldo not stepped up to break Juve hearts at the very end of tonight’s game.

You really can’t write this stuff.

After coming into today’s match after falling 3-0 behind in the tie in the first-leg, Juventus were able to get off the mark early and push Real to their very limits in the Santiago Bernabeu this evening.

Mario Mandzukic tucked home a brace in the first-half before Blaise Matuidi levelled the playing field fifteen minutes into the second.

Gianluigi Buffon’s reaction to Juventus’ equaliser says it all.

Unfortunately for Juventus, a last minute penalty that was converted in confident fashion by Cristiano Ronaldo proved to be the difference between the sides and while it would have been nice to see yet another comeback come into fruition, tonight’s offering had more than enough drama to keep fans satisfied.
