Missed goal, annoyance … Cristiano Ronaldo’s evening is very difficult against Omonia

Set up to face Omonia Nicosia on Thursday in the Europa League with Manchester United (2-3), Cristiano Ronaldo was facing a delicate match. The Portuguese had many opportunities to shine without hitting the net. His counter has been stuck with just one goal in all competitions since the start of the season.

When he doesn’t want… Established for the third time this season in the Europa League when he used to sit on the bench at the start of every Premier League game, Cristiano Ronaldo faced a tough evening Thursday night at Omonia Nicosia (3-2 victory for Mancunians).

While the Red Devils, led after 34 minutes of play, managed to turn the situation on Marjan Cypriots, with two goals from Marcus Rashford in particular and a new goal from Anthony Martial, the Portuguese was unable to participate in the party. .

Huge waste in front of goal

In the 77th minute of play, CR7 is sent in front of goal by Diego Dalot. Alone against the cages and while the Omonia goalkeeper ditched his streak, he saw his recovery with his foot hitting the pole. More polished in the 83rd minute when he saw his shot attempt turn into an assist for Rashford, he missed a chance to score three more times.

In the nineties, he wasn’t fast enough to arm his shot and was pushed back by his direct opponent. A few moments later, alone at the far post, he fell victim to Rashford’s lack of precision, when he was perfectly positioned to score.

Finally, in overtime, he managed to shoot this time, but the curling shot only caught the amount of Cypriot cages. His angry rant over this last missed opportunity says a lot about the immense frustration of the Portuguese, who has scored only a small goal, from the penalty spot, in all competitions since the start of the season.
