Cristiano Ronaldo's frustration: failed to execute a penalty and missed a tremendous opportunity in Juventus' victory


Juventus win without ruffling 3-0 Chievo Verona and comfortably supports his leadership in the Italian Serie A, nine points ahead of Napoli. Douglas Costa, Emre Can and Daniele Rugani they convert the destination Vecchia Signora before the bottom, even though his great figure doesn't leave the stadium happy. Cristiano Ronaldo do not argue, exactly, the dream game: veteran goalkeeper Sorrentino cut him a penalty, the first since he arrived in Italian football, and then wasted a very clear opportunity to convert.

Portuguese attacker, 33, lost the opportunity to remain with the throne of Serie A top scorer in solitude: today he shared it with Colombians Duvan Zapata (Atalanta) and Italy Fabio Quagliarella (Sampdoria), all with 14 points.

In the 51 minutes of the game, when the 2-0 duel for Calcio leaders, the Portuguese set out to execute shots from the penalty spot. He directed with power to the left of goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino, 39, who threw himself with skill and parried a shot.

A few minutes later, at the age of 73, Cristiano received a central defender from the right and in an honest position, with the direction he wanted. However, his right hand, bitten, left. On the second missing occasion he showed a catalog of movements, showing his frustration.

His poor performance was given 24 hours before the trial verdict he faced in Spain for evasion: tomorrow he would know the sentence he would receive. Maybe, the news made him nervous. And that affects its purpose.
