The Brazilian collected the ball outside the area and raced past three defenders, exchanged passes with Gonzalo Higuain who backheeled the return to him and then left two more players in his wake before beating goalkeeper Guilherme to silence the Lokomotiv stadium.

Substitute Douglas Costa struck the decisive blow with a cool finish as the visitors rallied late on.

"Ronaldo was angry because he's not doing very well, he's had a knee problem for a few days and the adductor is easily worn out", Sarri told Sky Sport Italia.

However, what was Ransey's goal at the end, could have been Cristiano Ronaldo's.

It was Costa, a man blighted by injuries in 2019, who came up with his first goal since January. The ball was rolling into the goal nevertheless but the former Arsenal star chose to nick it in to ensure Juventus take the lead.
