AARON RAMSEY booted in Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal-bound free-kick on the line to prolong his Juventus team-mate’s miserable dead-ball run.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has failed to trouble the scorers with 28 attempts for the Old Lady since moving from Real Madrid last summer.
But his tame fourth-minute attempt against Lokomotiv Moscow looked destined to end the streak, after goalkeeper Guilherme spilled it through his legs.
That was until ex-Arsenal midfielder Ramsey charged in to get the final touch – with the ball already almost completely over the line.
To rub salt in the Portuguese superstar’s wounds, Lokomotiv would have been his 34th Champions League victim, a new record.
The Welshman sheepishly ran over to celebrate with his team-mates.
But, predictably, Ronaldo was not impressed.
And viewers joked the Ronaldo may have Ramsey kicked out the team because of it.
One speculated: “This could possibly be the last night on Earth for Aaron Ramsey. Stealing Ronaldo’s goals.”
The strike could be important for Ramsey given rumours suggesting Juve boss Maurizio Sarri could be considering axing him from the 25-man Champions League squad in favour of former Liverpool midfielder Emre Can.
Despite this, the 28-year-old has reportedly made a positive impact so far in Turin.
With Maurizio Sarri even suggested to be considering a switch in formation in order to get the best out of the creative midfielder’s talents.
Ramsey’s strike was cancelled out bu Aleksey Miranchuk before half-time.
But Douglas Costa’s sensational solo effort won it for Juve deep into added time and secured a spot in the last-16.
