Cristiano Ronaldo: Juventus ace nets record 400th league goal

Cristiano Ronaldo returns to Old Trafford to face former club Manchester United with Juventus on Tuesday and he will he hoping to improve on a poor record against Jose Mourinho.

Ronaldo scored 84 in the Premier League for Manchester United, 311 in La Liga for Real Madrid and he has five in Serie A for Juventus so far.

"Genoa did well not to expose themselves but these things shouldn't happen", he told reporters. We played for 10 minutes and then started thinking about Manchester. "We went from frantic to sleeping and vice versa". We should have had our mind on the job.

"Cristiano is very relaxed, working well and about his personal problems, they are nothing to do with me".

It was 2-0 11 minutes into the second half when Kevin Bonifazi headed home from a corner, and although Vanja Milinkovic-Savic's freakish dismissal with 15 minutes left gave Roma hope, they could not take advantage. Nothing is guaranteed or won before we've stepped on to the pitch.

"It will be a great Champions League night, United are strong, and like us they will also try to win".

Fabian Ruiz, an early replacement for injury victim Simone Verdi, opened the scoring just 14 minutes in, and Dries Mertens doubled the lead from the spot after Nicholas Opoku handled inside the area inside the final 10 minutes.

After a quiet start to the game, Ronaldo broke the deadlock for the home side in the 18th minute as Cancelo's strike deflected into the path of the Portugal star, who made no mistake from close range.

Hot on Ronaldo's heels is Lionel Messi, who has played 426 matches and scored 389 times.

Genoa had to wait until the 53rd minute for their first attempt on target but Juve keeper Wojciech Szczesny tipped Krzysztof Piatek's shot around the post.
