But while the striker didn’t score at the Allianz Stadium – he did celebrate as though he had!

Ronaldo started on the left side of an attacking three for Juve tonight.

The Portugal international managed a couple of pop-shots at goal as Juve sought an opener.

But it was Mario Mandzukic who broke the deadlock midway through the first half.

The striker rose to head home a cross from the left, which had floated over Ronaldo.

But the ex-Real Madrid star lifted his fist as if – for a moment – he has scored the goal himself!

Mandzukic ran off to celebrate in front of the fans and his team-mate Ronaldo eventually joined him.

The win for Juventus sees them move further away from title rivals Inter and Napoli in the battle for the Scudetto.

Inter started the game 12 points off the Old Lady but are now 15 off their rivals.

Napoli, in second, will play Frosinone at home on Saturday (2pm kick off).
