Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates with Floyd Mayweather after winning first trophy

May JohnsonJan 20, 2019

Portugal superstar Ronaldo scored the only goal of the game in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia - where the match had controversially been staged.

It was being said that women will be allowed in the match only if they are being accompanied by men.

Ronaldo's goal - his 16th of the season in all competitions - was enough to see Juventus, runners-up in the previous two seasons, get their hands on the trophy.

Both Juventus and AC Milan have won seven Super Cup titles each since the trophy was first awarded in 1988. It is only the start, we take it one step at a time.

The head of the Serie A, Gaetano Micciche, defended the decision to play in Saudi Arabia as an historic one.

Massimiliano Allegri's side are unbeaten so far in Serie A, and will be pushing for their first title of the season, which they hope will also include the Champions League.

The snow will become heavy at times north and west of the city and begin mixing with rain over Long Island and coastal New Jersey. An inch or two of snow is likely to the west of Interstate 95, with an inch or less along the corridor and to the east.

"It's right that we don't talk about it now out of respect for the player and for AC Milan, but we can talk about it from tomorrow", Nedved told RAI.

Milan's best shot on goal was a Patrick Cutrone effort after the break with their hopes dwindling after Kessie's sending off. "We played well, created a lot of chances and obviously I am happy to have scored the winning goal".

Following a goalless first half, Ronaldo made the difference on the hour mark, nodding in Miralem Pjanic's through-ball after a perfectly-timed run to score what proved the victor and secure his first trophy in the Bianconeri colours.

"Until a year ago, women [in Saudi Arabia] could not attend any sporting event", he said.

Higuain, who had come on for the final 20 minutes, had to be dragged away by his former teammates.
