Cristiano Ronaldo’s going to like Diego Simeone a little bit less today — if possible — as the Argentine manager engineered a come-from-behind draw to get a measure of revenge for last season’s knockout round ouster.

And Ronaldo won’t be too happy with himself, either, as the Juve star missed a chance to win it in stoppage time, moments after Atletico Madrid had scored the final goal of 2-2 draw at the Wanda Metropolitano.
That left Mexican star Hector Herrera the unabashed hero, as he headed home in stoppage time.
Juve scored a beauty to open it, with Juan Cuadrado spinning a left-footed wonder strike that painted the side netting.
Blaise Matuidi had Juve up 2-0, but Atleti pulled one back via a Stefan Savic header off a set piece in the 70th minute.
That’s when Herrera nodded his goal home.
But Ronaldo… how often has he scored this kind of goal in this competition?
