Ronaldo’s Brace Help 10-Man Juventus Hold Roma In 2-2 Draw

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice as 10-man Juventus came from behind to draw 2-2 at Roma in Serie A on Sunday.

Juve twice fell behind to goals from Jordan Veretout – the first a penalty awarded for handball and the second a drive, assisted by Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Ronaldo levelled the first with his own penalty, also given for handball.

Adrien Rabiot was then sent off for the visitors for a second bookable offence but Ronaldo salvaged a point with a towering header from Danilo’s cross.

The game was the second of Andrea Pirlo’s managerial reign at Juventus and was the first points dropped after their opening 3-0 win over Sampdoria.

Sunday’s result leaves Juventus in fifth place.

Roma are down in 13th on one point, as their opening day 0-0 draw against Hellas Verona was changed to a 3-0 defeat by Serie A because they fielded an ineligible player.
