Aaron Ramsey scored the need for apologize to Cristiano Ronaldo after scoring in Juventus's 2-1 win at Lokomotiv Moscow on Wednesday.
Guilherme spilled a Ronaldo free-kick behind him, with Ramsey getting to the ball to knock it in as it trickles towards the goalline.
Both UEFA and Juventus credited the Welshman with the goal, which was his first in the Champions League since a strike for Arsenal against Monaco in March 2015.
Whether or not the goal would have gone to Ronaldo had Ramsey had it touched up for debate, as Guilherme had clearly dropped the ball in front of it.
But given that the Portuguese is such a relentless hunter of goals, Ramsey appeared to be a little sheepish when celebrating it with his teammates on the pitch, before he had said he was sorry for the Champions League's all-time record goalscorer, who has 129 strikes in the competition.
"I thought the keeper was a lot closer to me and had a chance of diving back and maybe clearing it," Ramsey told reporters after the match.
I've been apologized to Cristiano. "
Lokomotiv equalized in the meantime Alexei Miranchuk, before substitute Douglas Costa won it for the visitors in stop-time after brilliant Chelsea forward Gonzalo Higuain.
Leverkusen beating Atlético Madrid 2-1 in Group D's other game. The win secured Juve's place in next year's knockout stages.
"We're still happy with our goal of qualifying tonight, so we're happy that we've done that," added Ramsey, who now has two goals in his eight Juve appearances.
