Playing at the Estadio do Dragao, Thursday (18/2/2021) in the morning WIB, Ronaldo was barely visible throughout the match. This is due to Juventus being pressured from the start, even conceding a quick goal when the game has only been running for a minute.
In addition, the defense meeting of Porto, commanded by Pepe, made Ronaldo’s game less prominent. A total of 17 successful tackles, 15 strokes and 7 interceptions were successfully launched.
As a result, though Juventus The Bianconeri managed to take a 65 percent lead, but only 5 shots on goal were managed. Ronaldo himself only has one shot on goal for 90 minutes, to be precise in the 50th minute.
It happened when Juventus were behind 0-2, and was successfully pushed over by the goalkeeper Porto, Agustin Marchesin. The rest was divided equally by Matthijs de Ligt, Adrien Rabiot, Alvaro Morata, and Federico Chiesa (scored in the 82nd minute).
If you look further, Ronaldo’s game is actually not that bad. According to Whoscored, he became Juventus’ fourth best player with a score of 6.7 and only lost to Rabiot (7.5), Chiesa (7.4) and Rodrigo Bentancur (6.8).

The bait that is released is easy to sweep. Once successful, teammates fail to take advantage of opportunities. Ronaldo also had difficulty getting feedback from his colleagues, so he became a joint prisoner Juventus in this fight.
