Massimiliano Allegri plays down Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty miss against Chievo

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri plays down Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty miss in the last night’s game against Chievo. However, the Bianconeri coach believes that the Portuguese forward was in a rush to score early goals in yesterday’s Serie A clash. Juventus already sealed their win against Chievo by 3-0 when Cristiano Ronaldo missed his second-half penalty.

It is not the first time Juventus coach expressed his opinion about the 33-year-old international as he supported him in his previous bad times while calling him serene. And now, it seems the coach is in great favor of the star. Cristiano Ronaldo, on the other hand, still occupies his place as the top goalscorer of the Serie A even after last night’s miss.

Juventus secured their win against Chievo

Douglas Costa scored the opening goal for Juventus in the 13th minute followed by Emre Can’s brilliant strike in the 45th minute of the first half. Finally, Daniele Rugani sealed the 3-0 win for Juventus with his 84thminute score. With the successful penalty strike of Cristiano Ronaldo, the score could have been 4-0 in favor of the Turin club.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo has a great record in terms of taking penalties as he missed just 25 shots among 139 penalties he had already taken till now in club matches. In the international circuit, the Portuguese star scored seven times from his 11 penalty attempts for his national team as of now.

While talking about the penalty incident, Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri said “Important penalties are others … it can happen to miss a penalty,” and then further added “I don’t think this is the first time that Ronaldo misses a penalty in his career. The most important thing is that the team won the game at the end.”

He said “He (Ronaldo) wanted to score and in the second half technically played much better,” and then added “In the first half, he was rushing too much to find the net. In the second part of the match, when he played easier football, he had two or three good goal occasions.”
