• Two fans invaded the pitch during Juve's UCL match
  • Ronaldo scored as Juve won 2-0
  • Juve have finished as Group E leaders

Cristiano Ronaldo angrily pushed away a fan who invaded the pitch during Juventus's Champions League fixture against Bayer Leverkusen Wednesday night.

The incident occurred just after the final whistle. The fan ran to the pitch and put his arm around Ronaldo as an attempt to get a selfie. Unfortunately for the fan, he did not get a pleasant reaction from the superstar.

Ronaldo caught the fan's neck, pushed him away before the security intervened. It was just an unfortunate moment for the fan considering Ronaldo had hugged another fan, who invaded the pitch just after the 38-year-old had scored Juve's first goal.

The legendary soccer player later calmed down when his side defeated the hosts 2-0 at the BayArena stadium. Juventus, who had already qualified for the last-16, had nothing to lose but they ensured they progressed to the next round with a win on their back.

With the 2-0 win Wednesday, Maurizio Sarri's team finished as Group D leaders, which meant they'll be seeded in the Round of 16 stage.

While there was supposed friction between Ronaldo and Sarri, the forward has now scored three goals in as many games for the Italian club and overall nine goals this season.

"I feel good - the annoyance I felt has passed and the team is in good shape. Today we played a good second half. We are all growing and even I personally felt better today, more confident, and I hope to continue like this," Ronaldo said in a post-match interview.

Juventus, who have not won a Champions League trophy since their 1996 win, now have hopes stuck on Ronaldo's attacking skills. Ronaldo, on the other hand, has won five Champions League titles (one with Manchester United and four with Real Madrid), three trophies more than his current club.
