While Cristiano Ronaldo was hoping to play in the Champions League this year, that's just not going to be the case for him. Manchester United is in the Europa League, and while fans aren't happy, they've got a great chance of winning the title.
For Ronaldo, he's not used to playing in the competition. Believe it or not, he made personal history with his goal on Thursday.
Again, Ronaldo surely wishes he was in the CL, but the Europa League will have to do for now. With the way Man United is playing right now, though, we should see them finish in the Top 4 in the EPL this campaign.
