Cristiano Ronaldo controversial late penalty rescued a draw for Juventus in the first leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final at AC Milan.

Ronaldo and Ibrahimovic had been the star attractions in the build-up. Ante Rebic’s volley placed AC Milan ahead before the hosts lost Theo Hernandez to a second yellow card after 71 minutes.

Juventus looked set for a third straight away defeat. They offered little threat despite their man advantage. Juve barely created a chance and Ronaldo was often seen throwing his arms in the air in frustration.

Nonetheless, Juventus pushed in the final 20 minutes. It had to be Ronaldo who finally offered his side a lifeline.

The late VAR awarded spot-kick allowed Ronaldo to make it 35 goals in 35 games for club and country. The Portuguese International was never going to miss. Ronaldo calmly smashed home in the 90th minute after Davide Calabria’s blocked his overhead kick by hand. The right-back faced the wrong direction when Ronaldo struck the ball.

His goal at the San Siro made it 12 goals in eight games in 2020 and a goal in an 11th consecutive game.

Home fans may have felt aggrieved that their earlier penalty shout had been denied. All in all, Ibrahimovic didn’t fare much better although his hold-up did provide Milan with a focal point and outlet.

In fact, Milan dominated but ended up disappointed they didn’t come away with the win.

Veteran Juventus goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon was the busiest keeper while Gianluigi Donnarumma had only one first-half save to make.

After knocking on the door for an age, Milan finally had a deserved goal when Samu Castillejo stood up a cross to the far post. The Croatian forward Rebic outmuscled Mattia De Sciglio to stroke home.
