Cristiano Ronaldo And Paulo Dybala Caught B*tching About Juventus Midfielders
Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala weren't happy with the service they received during Juventus' loss to Lyon, and everyone knows after they were caught complaining about the midfielders.
Juventus were beaten 1-0 in the last 16 first leg in Lyon on Wednesday, leaving them in danger of being knocked out, and failed to have a single shot on target.
However the forwards weren't ready to accept any blame. French outlet RMC Sport released video footage of Ronaldo and Dybala complaining about the midfield.

"We are left alone out there, the midfielders are giving us no support," Ronaldo moaned to his fellow forward.
"Nobody is getting the ball," Dybala replied.
"I know, not even the second balls, nothing," Ronaldo says at the end of the interaction.
However despite the complaints from the Champions League all time leading scorer and his fellow frontman the Old Lady did have fourteen chances in all during the game and failed to trouble the keeper on a single occasion and the team had a pass accuracy of 87%.

Adrien Rabiot, Miralem Pjanic and Rodrigo Bentancur, the midfield trio who started the match, might not be too happy with what was said but if the forwards can bail the team out of trouble in the second leg they may not care.
Ronaldo did exactly that almost exactly a year ago. In the last 16 of last season's Champions League Juventus lost the first leg 2-0 to Atletico Madrid in Spain.
The five time Ballon d'Or winner scored a hat-trick in the second leg as the Italian's made it through to the quarter finals, winning 3-2 on aggregate.
There must be some doubt as to whether or not the second leg will go ahead on time. This weekend five Serie A games have been postponed because of Coronavirus.
Amongst the games called off is Juve's Derby d'Italia game with Inter, due to be played in Turin. The match has been postponed until May 13th.
