Cristiano Ronaldo will be seeking to end his uncommon goals’ drought in the UEFA Champions League as Juventus host his former club Manchester United in one of tonight’s Match Day 4 games.

The Portuguese have gone five games without finding the back of the net in the Champions League and that is quite on unusual for Ronaldo who literally bosses the prestigious competition with several records to his name.

Having come close to scoring at the Old Trafford when Juve pipped Jose Mourinho’s men by a lone goal in the reverse fixture, Ronaldo will be hoping he would get it right in Turin tonight.

The Juventus versus Manchester United game is obviously not just about Ronaldo as attention is also on Paul Pogba who he is returning to Turin, the city he blossomed to become a world-acclaimed star.

Already, Mourinho has warned the French star to forget emotions and fight for the United jersey tonight.

Indeed, United are the ones under pressure as Juventus looks home and dry for a place in the last 16 and are even guaranteed to finish top once they avoid defeat tonight.
