Cristiano Ronaldo thanked for supportive message by Chievo goalkeeper after injury

Ronaldo was not on the scoresheet but was a constant threat in behind and tested the Chievo goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino several times, but could not beat the Italian.

When the score was locked at 2-2 with the clock ticking down, Juventus thought that they had sealed the win when Mario Mandžukić headed the ball in after a goalmouth scramble, only for the goal to be disallowed after an accidental clash between Cristiano Ronaldo and Sorrentino was spotted via VAR.

The Chievo goalkeeper took a knee to the face and came off worst from the collision and had to be substituted.

"I have received a message of closeness and prompt recovery from Cristiano Ronaldo. Thank you legend!", the tweet read.
