Juventus have a mountain to climb if they're going to reach the Champions League quarter-finals.
Wednesday's 2-0 defeat against Atletico Madrid means the Old Lady will have to score at least three goals against one of Europe's best defences in the second leg next month.
A lot of the pressure is on Ronaldo considering Juventus spent €100m to sign him from Real Madrid last summer to fire them to Champions League glory.
And he was visibly frustrated at the Wanda Metropolitano as he responded to jeers from Atletico fans by gesturing that he's won the competition five times.
The 33-year-old's mood continued after the game, too. When walking through the mixed zone, Ronaldo held up five fingers and said: "I have five Champions Leagues, you (Atletico) have none."
Ronaldo has since received mixed ratings from the Italian media for his performance, with some outlets saying he was Juventus' worst player and others defending him.
It certainly wasn't Ronaldo's best display in a Juventus shirt, but his full match statistics show he was far from terrible.
In fact, the Portuguese completed seven dribbles against Atletico and that's the most he's managed in the Champions League since August 2009 - almost 10 years ago.
Ronaldo's numbers from the Atletico game, per WhoScored, are as follows:
Shots - 7 (highest)
Shots on target - 1 (joint highest)
Key passes - 2 (joint highest)
Dribbles completed - 7 (highest)
Passing accuracy - 95.1% (second highest)
Aerial duels won - 2 (third highest)
Match rating - 7.35 (highest)
So, even though Ronaldo didn't have his best game, he was still top in most departments when it came to attacking. Perhaps his teammates deserve more of the blame.
Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala started alongside Ronaldo against Atletico and only managed a shot each. Mandzukic also missed the target and didn't complete a single dribble.
Juventus' midfield of Blaise Matuidi, Miralem Pjanic and Rodrigo Bentencur made just three key passes between them, too, which was only one more than Ronaldo.
Ronaldo is often made a scapegoat when his team loses and fails to score, and on this occasion it genuinely seems like he's been hard done by.News Now - Sport News
