Aaron Ramsey brings up Juventus’ 300th Champions League goal

Aaron Ramsey brings up Juventus’ 300th Champions League goal”

Substitute Douglas Costa scored an exquisite stoppage-time goal to give Juventus a 2-1 win away to Lokomotiv Moscow yesterday, which clinched their place in the Champions League round of 16 with two games to spare.

Juve took the lead after Lokomotiv's goalkeeper Guilherme failed to keep hold of Ronaldo's low free-kick and the ball spun towards the goal before Aaron Ramsey poked it into the net.

Juve are the fifth team to reach 300 goals in the competition, joining Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester United in an elite club.

Despite it looking as though Juventus would go on to capitalize on their early lead, Lokomotiv equalized only eight minutes later when Aleksei Miranchuk, the scorer in Turin when the two sides met two weeks earlier, headed across goal and onto the far post.

Ronaldo was seen remonstrating with Sarri as he trudged off the pitch, although about what exactly remains unclear.

Far from outclassed, Lokomotiv almost went ahead in the 78th minute but Joao Mario saw his shot cleared off the line by Leonardo Bonucci with goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny caught out of his ground.

It was not to be Ronaldo's night as he was replaced with nine minutes to go, yet Costa stepped up to be the hero, weaving in off the left wing and finishing after a one-two with Gonzalo Higuain.

What does it mean?

Maurizio Sarri replaced Ronaldo with Paulo Dybala with the score level at 1-1, with Douglas Costa scoring the victor in added time.

It was Costa, a man blighted by injuries in 2019, who came up with his first goal since January. Now if he can just stay fit. Well, it definitely won't put Ramsey on Ronaldo's good side, that's for sure.
