Watch: Cristiano Ronaldo lays on chance for Juve with cute backheel


Juventus may have flopped this season but Cristiano Ronaldo remains the biggest baller in world football. 

Since signing for the club in 2018, Ronaldo has scored 101 goals in Italy – 36 of them this season.

And the Portugal icon is not immune from showcasing the ball skills that marked the early stages of his career.

Juventus were being held 1-1 by Atalanta in the Coppa Italia final when Ronaldo received a long clearance in the opposition penalty area.

Faced with Manchester United target Cristian Romero, the 36-year-old pulled off an incredibly cheeky backheel that left the Atalanta defender facing the wrong direction.

The ball found its way to Federico Chiesa, who whacked a shot against the lefthand upright.

Ronaldo may leave Juventus this summer if the club fails to qualify for the Champions League, so Italian fans should enjoy him while he’s still there.
