Despite United’s best efforts, Zapata’s second-half goal restored Atalanta’s lead, and Ronaldo scored his second of the match in the 91st minute to salvage a draw.

With two games remaining, the group is now evenly poised, with United leading the pack and having a decent chance of advancing partly due to Ronaldo’s contributions.

Following the match, Ronaldo said that his squad was “a little bit lucky” to salvage a draw against Atalanta.

It was a tough game, and I know that every game we play in Bergamo is tough, but we kept believing until the very end, and that’s why I’m so thrilled, he told.

To quote us: “We never give up, we believe till the end, and it is a good result for us. The first few minutes were challenging because we anticipated that Atalanta would apply heavy pressure.

They have a great coach, and I remember that they were always a challenge for my team, Juventus, when I was on their roster. Finally, we were lucky, but that’s football.

Zapata’s second-half goal restored Atalanta’s lead, but Ronaldo scored his second goal of the match in the 91st minute to pull United to within a goal.

United at the Top of the Group With an Excellent Chance

Now, with two games remaining in the group stage, everything is perfectly balanced, with United at the top of the group with an excellent chance of passing owing primarily to Ronaldo’s goal.

Ronaldo said after the game that his team was “little bit fortunate” to salvage a draw against Atalanta.

It was a tough game, and I know that anytime we play in Bergamo, it’s going to be tough, but we kept believing until the very end, and I’m very happy about that, he said.

We never give up, hold on to hope until the very end, and that’s why we always come out on top.

Conclusion

Atalanta came out strong, as expected; they had an excellent manager, and they were always tough for my Juventus team to play against when I was on the field. Yes, luck played a role in the end, but such is the nature of the game.

Nonetheless, the goal was awarded following a two-minute-and-six-second VAR review, much to the delight of the home crowd.

United, desperate to get back in the game, continued to press, even bringing in more offensive players in the hopes of making a difference.

While United’s chances of winning were dwindling, Ronaldo scored from the edge of the area to force overtime.
