Cristiano Ronaldo Confronted By Fan On The Pitch During Win Over Sassuolo

12 February, 2019 | Olayemi

Cristiano Ronaldo came face-to-face with a fan during Juventus' 3-0 victory at Sassuolo on Sunday, with the pitch invader performing the Portuguese's iconic goal celebration in front of him.

During the second-half of the match, a topless supporter sprinted clear of stadium stewards and reached the striker, who watched his celebration re-enacted.

Ronaldo offered the man a friendly pat on the face before security caught up with him and escorted him from the pitch. 

The fan sported a close-cropped blonde haircut with a bandana around his neck and jumper tied on his waist as he sprinted across the pitch. 

That was a small interlude in an eventful game for Ronaldo, whose spilled shot allowed Sami Khedira to turn home the opening goal after 23 minutes.

Ronaldo would get on the scoresheet himself with a header from Miralem Pjanic's corner next.

Emre Can came off the bench to grab the final goal in the second half as Juventus moved 11 points clear of second-placed Napoli.
