Compilation Of Cristiano Ronaldo's 'Disasterclass' In Champions League Knockout Defeat To Porto

A compilation of Cristiano Ronaldo's below-par performance against Porto has been doing the rounds after his Juventus side were knocked out of the Champions League.

Having lost 2-1 in the first leg, Juventus won 3-2 in extra time at the Allianz Stadium but it was the Portuguese outfit who booked a place in the quarter finals courtesy of the away goals ruling.

The Bianconeri were knocked out at the same stage by Lyon last season under Maurizio Sarri and suffered the same fate under new boss Andrea Pirlo.

And Ronaldo, the highest-scorer in the Champions League, was unable to influence either of the round of 16 ties.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has made a career out of producing on the big European nights, whether it be for Manchester United, Real Madrid or Juventus.

But apart from an assist for Federico Chiesa's stunning strike, Ronaldo was incredibly ineffective and continued a wretched record against Porto, who he has scored just once in eight games against.

Granted his supply wasn't of the highest standard but he did misse a second half header that you'd normally expect him to gobble up.

The 36-year-old was also at fault for the crucial goal that ultimately knocked Juve out as he did not do his job properly in the wall and allowed Sergio Oliveira to drill a free-kick through his legs and past Wojciech Szczęsny in extra time.

His final action, where he miscontrolled a pass and saw the ball roll out of play, summed up his night.

A five-time winner of the competition, Ronaldo was tasked with being the man who brought Champions League glory to Turin.

But with him in their ranks, the club haven't got past the quarter finals and have been eliminated by Ajax, Lyon and now Porto in his three seasons with the Bianconeri.
