Cristiano Ronaldo was Juventus’ saviour as he came off the bench to earn the Bianconeri a 2-2 draw against Atalanta on Boxing Day, and keep their unbeaten start to the Serie A season going.

It was the first time this season that Ronaldo hadn’t started for Juventus in Serie A, as Bianconeri coach Massimiliano Allegri looked to shake things up over Christmas.

Duvan Zapata goals, either side of Rodrigo Bentancur’s sending off, put Atalanta in the driving seat. But supersub Ronaldo nodded home with 12 minutes left to grab a vital point for the Bianconeri.
