Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo has made history by becoming the first player ever to score 400 goals in Europe.

Allegri responded by introducing Paulo Dybala for Blaise Matudi as a frantic finale beckoned with Genoa holding on for a surprising point.

But when it came to leaving AC Milan at the end of last season there was only one place he wanted to go. Every match has to be won on the pitch in 90 minutes.
