Ronaldo scored an impressive late winner in that game to send United to top of the group.

In a message written after arriving back in Italy, Ronaldo says he is determined to help United stay in first place.


This is United’s first Champions League away game since the shock defeat to Young Boys.

United generally have a strong away record, while Atalanta have actually found it trickier at home this season.

In six league games Atalanta have scored eight goals, compared to 12 netted in five away matches.

Ronaldo knows Atalanta well from his three seasons in Serie A, and won the Coppa Italia final against them last season.

United’s next Champions League game will be after the international break away at Villarreal, before a home fixture against Young Boys.

Ronaldo has three goals in three Champions League games this season and will be keen to keep up that streak.
