Cristiano Ronaldo misses penalty for Real Madrid against Malaga

Published 9 Comments

Look up into the sky and you might see a blue moon. Cristiano Ronaldo has missed a penalty.

The Real Madrid star, usually so clinical from 12 yards, fluffed his lines in the first half against Malaga as his tame effort was comfortably saved by Carlos Kameni.

It’s rather ironic Ronaldo missed a penalty in the same week that he revealed he prefers taking them to free-kicks.

In an interview with Unscriptd, the 31-year-old said in response to being asked which he favours more: “Penalty. I think penalties are better. [There’s more] adrenaline and I prefer stuff with adrenaline.”

He might have a change of heart after his ninth penalty miss since joining Madrid in 2009.

Of course, Twitter responded to Ronaldo’s dire effort in hilarious fashion.

Ronaldo opened the scoring for Los Blancos with his 34th goal of the season - but the goal shouldn’t have counted as the forward was offside.

The Portugal international produced a brilliant header to steer home Toni Kroos’ free-kick but quite how the linesman missed Ronaldo standing in an offside position is bizarre.

Madrid were pegged back in the second half thanks to Raul Albentosa’s goal. Ronaldo’s penalty miss could prove costly.
