It even happens to five-time Ballon d’Or winners. Cristiano Ronaldo distinguished himself with an incredible miss in front of goal Monday evening, during the quarter-final of the Asian Champions League between his Saudi club Al Nassr and the Emirati team Al Ain.

While the score was 2-2, the Portuguese inherited the ball two meters from the opposing goal after a blunder by the goalkeeper, but he managed to shoot wide. His teammate Alex Telles made up for it by scoring two minutes later with a nice free kick (72nd). And Cristiano Ronaldo finally managed to find the net by converting a penalty into overtime (118th).

Final score 4 goals to 3 for Al-Nassr, but 4-4 on aggregate since Al Ain won 1-0 in the first leg. The penalty shootout went in favor of the Emiratis, who advanced to the semi-final. Big disappointment for Al Nassr who saw himself going to the end of the competition. “Thanks for your support. We will find a way to bounce back and come back stronger. Together, always!”, wrote the 39-year-old Portuguese on X after the meeting.
