Fans accuse Cristiano Ronaldo of appealing for offside during teammate Paulo Dybala's winner


With 13 minutes remaining, Juventus trailed Lokomotiv Moscow 1-0 at the Allianz Stadium on Tuesday night.

Defeat would have been a massive shock and blow Group D wide open.

Juve needed a hero.

On Champions League nights, that is usually Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, instead, it was teammate Paulo Dybala who rescued the Old Lady.

Dybala equalised in the 77th-minute with a tremendous strike from outside of the box.

Then, two minutes later, he smashed home his second after Alex Sandro’s shot had been parried.

The home fans went wild but Ronaldo didn’t seem too delighted to have been upstaged.

Now, we’ve seen him do this on numerous occasion during his career but when Dybala scored the winner, Ronaldo appeared to look to the assistant referee and appeal for offside.


Surely that’s not what he’s actually doing.

Well, that’s what fans were accusing him of.

Ronaldo’s reaction is made worse by the fact that, despite standing right next to him when Dybala scores, he’s the seventh teammate to trot over to congratulate him.

He didn’t exactly look too enthused that Dybala had just turned the match around single-handedly.

The 2-1 win put Juve top of the group on seven points from their opening three fixtures, ahead of Atletico Madrid on goal difference.

Meanwhile, Lokomotiv Moscow sit in third with three points while Bayer Leverkusen are still without a point after a 1-0 loss to Atleti on Tuesday.
