Cristiano Ronaldo Fans Brand Lionel Messi "Missi" After El Clasico Miss
Cristiano Ronaldo fanboys savagely trolled Lionel Messi for missing a tap in during the El Clasico.
Barcelona drew 0-0 with Real Madrid on Wednesday night as Messi fluffed his side's best chance of the game. He failed to convert from close range after Antoine Griezmann set him up.
The Argentine ace struggled to connect with the ball as he attempted to salvage the situation, but to no avail.
His miss didn't go unnoticed with a Ronaldo fan who uploaded the clip online, accompanied with the caption: "Messi fans always calling Ronaldo 'Tapnaldo'. Well here's Missi."
Needless to say, Messi's miss sent social media into overdrive.
"If only tapping was easy," one social media user wrote.
A second Tweeted: "Tap in could have made el clasico just interesting and walked off with 3 points."
A third added: "Ronaldo would have scored easily."
Another wrote: "cr7 wld have hammered it in."
Just witnessed something rarer than rocking-horse shit: Messi missed a sitter...although VAR would've ruled it out for handball, I reckon.- Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) December 18, 2019

Ronaldo, on the other hand, scored an incredible match winner for Juventus against Sampdoria.
He jumped like Michael Jordan to head home to give his side all three league points.
The 35-year-old showed super-human athleticism as he remained suspended in the air for 1.5 seconds, before smashing in Alex Sandro's cross just before the break.
