Cristiano Ronaldo has so often been the hero for Juventus over the course of his two-and-a-half year stay in Turin, but on Wednesday he failed from the penalty spot as they drew 1-1 with Atalanta.

Here's the story of an off-colour night for the Portugal great.

📷 Cristiano Ronaldo: Match Snapshot

Ronaldo started in attack for Juventus but there was little to report from the Portugal ace in front of goal. As he looked tired, a fine strike from Federico Chiesa gave Juve the lead at the break.

Early in the second half, though, Atalanta hit back, with Remo Freuler netting a leveller.

⏱️ 61' Ronaldo has the opportunity to restore Juve's lead from the penalty spot. He strikes to the left of Pierluigi Gollina, but the kick is weak and the goalkeeper smothers it.

This, however, was a poor outing by comparison as he notched a 6.3 FC Rating.

Ronaldo: What Next?

Juventus are only third in Serie A and trail Milan by three points. That is a situation that needs rectified.

Ronaldo will take his side to visit Parma on Saturday before a home match with Fiorentina next Tuesday.
