Cristiano Ronaldo's Attempt To "Drop Deep Like Lionel Messi" Against AC Milan Backfired Massively

Cristiano Ronaldo's Attempt To "Drop Deep Like Lionel Messi" Against AC Milan Backfired Massively

Cristiano Ronaldo's attempt to "drop deep like Lionel Messi" for Juventus against AC Milan resulted in Milan taking the lead.

The Serie A leaders suffered a shock 4-2 defeat last night and when pegged back to 2-2, Ronaldo decided to try and get a grip of the game.

However, his first pass hit the back of a teammate's heel and his second attempt was quickly snuffed out as Milan broke on the counter.

Within seconds, Rafael Leao had put his side 3-2 ahead and left the five-time Ballon d'Or winner wondering what had gone wrong.

Ronaldo's attempt at being a playmaker was quickly compared to the role longtime rival Messi plays at Barcelona.

The Argentine regularly drops into midfield to get on the ball more and work his magic, something fans think Ronaldo was eager to try.

Ronaldo did manage to score in the defeat, but the standout goal of the night came from teammate Adrien Rabiot.

The midfielder won the ball in his own half, shrugged off an opposition player before skipping past another.

He then made a storming run into through Milan's backline before smashing home a stinging left-footed strike past Gianluigi Donnarumma.

It was the Frenchman's first goal for Juve and it's certainly not a bad way to open your account.

Despite Maurizio Sarri's side leading for much of the game, a sensational five minute spell saw Milan go 3-2 up.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's penalty started the comeback before Franck Kessie and Leo both netted within a minute of each other.

Ante Rebic added a fourth ten minutes from time to seal victory for Stefano Pioli's side.

The defeat is Juventus' fourth of the season in Serie A as they look for a ninth consecutive league title.
