SAVED... OR IS IT?

One of the best saves you’ll see this season from Jan Oblak was all in vain

The Atletico keeper seemingly denied Cristiano Ronaldo's bullet header... only for the ball to cross the line by millimetres

It’s all square in Juventus’ Champions League tie with Atletico Madrid.

Two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo (who else, huh?) have cancelled out Atleti’s 2-0 lead from the first-leg, meaning both sides have it all to play for.

But initially, the second goal looked like an incredible save from Jan Oblak.

On the 52nd minute of the game, Federico Bernardeschi crossed the ball in from the right wing, straight to the head of the rising Ronaldo.

He then fired a bullet header towards the top left of the goal, forcing Oblak to dive to his right and claw the ball out and away.

What a save! Or is it?

After a brief pause, the referee pointed at his watch to indicate the ball had actually crossed the line.

Only just though, trickling over by just a couple of millimetres.

Brilliant save from Oblak, but even better header from Ronaldo, it seems.

The Slovenian goalkeeper is widely considered one of the best in the world right now, and has been the cornerstone of Diego Simeone’s incredible defensive record at Atleti over the years.

And for a split second, it looked as if he’d pulled off one of the best saves of the season.
