However, Federico Chiesa pulled one back – but more importantly got the away goal, which means Juventus would have to beat Porto 1-0 to progress in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final. It will not be easy as Porto would be high-on-confidence after the win over Juventus.
Despite Juventus’ poor run in the Seria A thus far, Ronaldo still is the joint-most scorer in the league with 16 goals. He is equal with Romelu Lukaku – who jas been having a season to remember.

Soon there was a change of heart as Messi decided to stay back at the club till the end of his contract as he did not want to drag them to court over a legal battle.
