VIDEO: Cristiano Ronaldo Brilliant Performance – Manchester United v Villarreal | UEFA Champions League 2021/2022

RONALDO SCORES! It’s a great cross in from Fred on the left which Ronaldo cushions down for Lingard. He does brilliantly to touch it back towards Ronaldo, and he hits it from a very tight angle on the right of the box. Rulli gets a hand to it, but can’t stop it from finding the top corner. 2-1 United

Ronaldo’s stoppage-time goal wins it for United as they beat Villarreal 2-1. De Gea played a big part for the hosts in the first half as he made four great saves to keep out Danjuma, Alcacer and Pino. Villarreal took the lead just after the break though when Alcacer flicked it past the keeper.

Telles then equalised with a wonderful volley from the edge of the box. De Gea made another important double save late on before Ronaldo fired in the winner deep in stoppage time from a tight angle.

United have started on the front foot here and McTominay closes down a loose pass from Torres. He feeds it into Ronaldo and he squares it into Fernandes to his left. He hits it the first time, but it’s always rising high over the bar.

Telles whips a great corner in and Ronaldo rises highest in the crowded box to reach it. He gets caught under it though and his header loops high over the crossbar.

Ronaldo is making his 178th Champions League appearance, overtaking Iker Casillas as the player with the most appearances in the competition’s history.

Trigueros is caught on the ball by Sancho this time, and he sets United on the counter by switching it out to Pogba on the left. He whips an early cross into the box towards Ronaldo, but Rulli is quickly out to intercept it.

Fernandes times his run perfectly to stay onside and get on the end of Pogba’s through ball. He chips a cross into the far post to pick out Ronaldo, but he scuffs the volley and it’s a comfortable one for Rulli at his near post.

WIDE! It’s a brilliant cross from Pogba on the left towards Ronaldo, who is making a late run into the box. Rulli rushes off his line to close him down but Moreno sticks out a leg which makes it past the keeper and almost sends it into the back of the net, but it’s just wide.
