Juve signed Ronaldo specifically to help them finally win Europe's biggest club prize for the first time since 1996 but so far it hasn't gone according to plan.
On Wednesday night they had a set back on their campaign to win the title this season, as Porto scored early in both halves to take a 2-0 lead.
What summed that up better than anything was a moment in the second half when Ronaldo won the ball on the left, went to cut inside and ran straight into Alex Sandro, with the Juve left back unable to get out of the way, and Porto won the ball straight back.

The 36-year-old could do very little as Andrea Pirlo's side conceded in the second minute of the game, with Rodrigo Bentancur's back pass being intercepted by Mehdi Taremi, who opened the scoring.
Porto were pretty comfortable for much of the first half and straight after the break they doubled the lead, this time the goal coming even sooner after kick off.
Moussa Merage made it 2-0 inside the first minute of the second half and it looked like they would hold onto their two goal advantage, that was until Chiesa scored in the 82nd minute.
In typical fashion Ronaldo couldn't be kept completely out of the game, and he felt he should have won a penalty in injury time, but the referee and his video assistant did not agree.
Ronaldo is fuming here! :rage:- Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) February 17, 2021
Late drama as Juventus are convinced they should have been awarded a last-minute penalty...

There's now a chance neither Messi or Ronaldo will be in the quarter finals for the first time since 2005, or will Ronaldo manage to get Juventus through?
