Ronaldo is the competition's lead goal scorer on 129 goals so getting an extra one might not have done him too much damage but it might have been the nature of what would have been his goal that caused the annoyance.

Substitute Douglas Costa's injury-time victor secured Juventus their spot in the Champions League last 16 Wednesday after a 2-1 victory over Lokomotiv Moscow.

Bonucci said, "Douglas Costa's goal allowed us to take the three points".

Lokomotiv equalised shortly afterwards through Alexei Miranchuk, before substitute Douglas Costa won it for the visitors in stoppage-time after brilliant link-up play with the former Chelsea forward Gonzalo Higuain.

Juve dominated the final moments and Costa clinched their sixth straight last 16 appearance with a tidy side-footed finish in injury time for his first Bianconeri goal since January.

The equaliser seemed to inspire Lokomotiv and they could have taken the lead less than 10 minutes later.

The goal ensured Juventus qualified from Group D with two games to spare.

Cristiano Ronaldo curled in a free kick from the left flank and Lokomotiv goalkeeper Guilherme let the wet ball slip through his hands.

"I thought the keeper was a lot closer to me and had a chance of diving back and maybe clearing it".

'My instinct took over to make sure that it went over the line. "I've apologized to Cristiano".

Many suggested that Ronaldo is past his days when he used to score glorious goals from freekicks, and now should pass the responsibility to other players in the team.

The victory in Russian Federation means that Juve have now qualified for the knockout stage, although they could still be beaten to first place in Group D by Atletico Madrid.

"We've achieved our first target for the season, which is qualify for the Round of 16, so now we want to end this mini-run of games well on Sunday against Milan".
