More than failing to score, the miss meant Ronaldo lost a bet with Juventus boss Allegri as the pair had wagered at the beginning of the season that the summer signing would not miss a single penalty all season. 

Ronaldo told press after the clash via Daily Mail: "It's true I had a bet with my coach on scoring every penalty this season.

"I'm ready to keep it.

"It makes me happy to know that my contribution is appreciated by my coach and teammates.

Ronaldo has scored 108 spot-kicks but failed with a further 22 during his illustrious career with Sporting Lisbon, Manchester United, Real Madrid, Portugal and Juventus.

Former Ballon d'Or winner has converted five penalties in Juventus where he scored 16 goals in 27 games in all competitions for his new side after a £100million summer transfer from Real Madrid.
