Cristiano Ronaldo just avoided a flying bottle while celebrating his goal

07 Mar 2018

After opening the scoring at the Parc des Princes, Cristiano Ronaldo was just inches away from being hit by a flying plastic bottle thrown from the stands.

The goal effectively ended PSG’s hopes of reaching the quarter-finals and he celebrated sliding on his knees, hugging Dani Carvajal and turning to the fans.

That was when a bottle was thrown at him, as was captured by the cameras.

If it had hit the Portuguese superstar it would have added to the controversy created by ultras, who twice forced the game to be halted due to flares.
