United, who were forced to reorganize after defender Raphael Varane left the injury, just equalized with an excellent well-worked goal in the battle of the break – Ronaldo shot home after a fluent exchange of passes, including a backheel from Bruno Fernandes.

Atalanta restored their lead in the 56th minute when Zapata broke past Harry Maguire, crashed into the box and beat De Gea. The line judge’s flag was hoisted for offside, but after a lengthy VAR review, the decision was overturned and the Italian team had the lead.

But Ronaldo knocked on a loose ball on the edge of the box in stoppage time and blasted a volley home to earn a valuable point for Ole Gunnar Solskj√¶r’s team.
