Cristiano Ronaldo scored a later equaliser against Atalanta in a Champions League 2021/22 group stage tie on November 2 as Manchester United came back from behind twice to seal a crucial point against the Serie A side.
Atalanta took the lead twice in the match but on both occasions, Ronaldo restored parity for the Red Devils. This was the 13th time in the Champions League, that Ronaldo scored a goal in the 90th minute or after it. He went past former Manchester City star, Sergio Aguero's record of scoring the most number of match-winning goals on or after 90 minutes.
Ronaldo has three game-winning goals in the Champions League after the 90th minute. He has scored match-winning goals against Villarreal, Sporting Lisbon (2007/08) and Manchester City (2012/13).
When it comes to scoring late goals in the Champions League, Ronaldo's rival Lionel Messi is quite far. The Argentine has managed to score late goals in only six matches in his career compared to Ronaldo's tally of 12.
