Cristiano Ronaldo put his Red Card disappointment at the Champions League aside to help Juventus to another league game victory away at Frosinone on Sunday evening.
The 33-year-old left the field crying after he was harshly shown a red card during Juve’s Champions League clash in the Spanish city in the week.
But it was back to business for the A$178million summer signing from Real Madrid as he scored a scuffed effort to break Frosinone hearts in the 81st minute.
Pjanic’s shot was blocked by a defender and the ricochet fell straight to the former Manchester United man who slotted it past Sportiello calmly.
There was some argument that Ronaldo was in an offside position, but the linesman’s flag stayed down, and the referee chose not to use VAR.
Juve, who dominated possession but were poor in the final third, added some gloss to the scoreline in the fourth minute of injury time.
Ronaldo won the ball in his own penalty area and brought it to the opposite end of the pitch before laying it off for Pjanic.
