In better news for Ronaldo, both he and Messi were named in the Ballon d'Or all-time best XI, along with the likes of Pele and Diego Maradona.

Ronaldo missed a penalty as Juventus drew for the sixth time in 12 Serie A games, this time against Atalanta, on Wednesday night.

Juve, who have won the past nine titles, are unbeaten after 12 league games under Andrea Pirlo, although half of them have been draws.

They're third in the table, four points behind leaders AC Milan.
