The Portuguese star fired a spectacular finish to give his side the lead in the second half against Manchester United

It took until his third Champions League match with the club, but Cristiano Ronaldo’s first European goal for Juventus was worth the wait, even in defeat.

Tied with Manchester United in the second half of Wednesday’s Champions League match, Ronaldo scored a stunning volley to give Juve a 1-0 lead in Turin.

The forward was played in by Leonardo Bonucci, and Ronaldo struck the ball first time out of the air, leaving David de Gea with no chance as Juventus surged in front following a tepid first half.

It wouldn’t be enough for the hosts to secure victory, though, as Juventus were eventually pegged back on a goal from Juan Mata in the 86th minute that leveled the score, before an own goal from Alex Sandro in the 90th minute gave Manchester United an unlikely 2-1 away win.

Ronaldo was playing in his third Champions League match for the club after previously appearing against Valencia in Spain and against Manchester United in a return to Old Trafford.

He was suspended for Juve’s second match, a win over Young Boys, after being sent off on his European debut for the club for grabbing Valencia defender Jeison Murillo.

The goal ended a drought for the former Real Madrid star, who hadn’t scored on any of his last 20 Champions League shots over a span of 453 total minutes.
