Ronaldo’s controversial penalty from four months ago was enough to send the Bianconeri into the summit clash where they will the winner of the other semi-final encounter between Napoli and Inter Milan. But despite the penalty miss and disappointing performance, netizens were pleased to see football action return to their live screens as well watch Ronaldo in action again.

Before Ronaldo’s miss though it appeared that the game was repeating itself from the first leg when Ronaldo pulled Juventus level from a controversial penalty in the final few minutes after AC Milan had prodded ahead. But A Milan survived this time. Ronaldo’s miss, however, once again set Twitter talking with many comparing him to Messi, who of late has missed a handful from the post while others also complained of Juventus forward's rustiness.
Off the Post

Yes! Every time
Oh right, I forgot when Juve plays that the Ronaldo/Messi discussion kicks up again.
Every good thing in life comes with a price, folks. Remember that.

Well Another Comparison
Cristiano Ronaldo missed a penalty today. But guess what? He didn't retire from football and didn't cost anyone a trophy. Unlike a certain short man who missed a penalty and cost his national team a trophy and retired because he couldn't man up and take responsibility. Levels!!
