Ronaldo is one of the greatest players of all time and certainly one of the best goalscorers to have graced a football pitch.
If you'd want anyone on the end of a cross that left them with a near open goal from two yards out then it would pretty much be the five time Ballon d'Or winner.
Ronaldo somehow managed to crack the post with his shot, when it looked easier to score, but he was saved as the ball headed back into Morata's path, who slotted home from by the penalty spot.

Ronaldo's fans be like... this is not a miss. this was intentional pass to Morata https://t.co/rbWpnBifgj- Jandal:flag_ps: (@HJandal) April 11, 2021
No miss , he used the post to get the assist. Ronaldo is just a :goat:- Football's Finest (@afc_cf) April 11, 2021
Dejan Kulusevski had given the Old Lady the lead in the game after just four minutes, before Morata's goal doubled the lead on 22 minutes.
Gianluca Scamacca pulled one back for the visitors just four minutes after half time, to give them some hope in the game.
Juve restored their two goal lead, and wrapped up all three points, as Weston McKenzie made it 3-1 in the 70th minute.
The win still leaves them 12 points off table toppers Inter, who won earlier on Sunday, and they're certain to miss out on a 10th league title in-a-row

It's actually the second time this week that Ronaldo has managed to miss from just a few yards out, when he looked certain to score.
The former Manchester United forward missed a straight forward header against Napoli, with many calling it a 'miss of the season contender.'
Even the greats have their moments.
