The opening exchanges of Juventus v Napoli saw Cristiano Ronaldo miss a simple chance to put Juve ahead from Danilo’s cross.
The rearranged Serie A match between Juventus and Napoli was entertaining from the off. Cristiano Ronaldo was furious in the first minutes after missing a very clear opportunity to put Juventus 1-0 up against Napoli.
Suma y sigue para Cristiano Ronaldo 🐐

The Portuguese’s miss made people wonder whether it was actually him who made the mistake. Danilo put in a cross from the right hand side and the cross in was one of those which all strikers relish.
The Napoli defence was very poor and they let Ronaldo shoot all on his own. CR7 went forward, jumped and tried to head, but he could only brush the ball. The Portuguese was unable to get a good head to it and he missed a clear chance to score.
After the mistake, he was angry. Cristiano Ronaldo gesticulated and even kicked the left hand post in frustration.
Luckily for him, he took advantage of a killer pass by Chiesa shortly afterwards to redeem himself inside the first 15 minutes.
