Mikaelson was referring to Real Madrid's three back-to-back Champions League's successes and how the Portugal captain underperformed in different matches.

This is the same Cristiano Ronaldo who
That’s 8 disasterclasses in 20 KO stage games played during the 3 peat. 40% ‼️Instead pf praising him, his fans should be grateful he was part of an elite team who stepped up and carried him most of the time. pic.twitter.com/ehzD9yHl7X— Kol Mikaelson (@kolmessi10) February 8, 2020
Ronaldo will return to Champions League action on the 26th of February as Juventus travel away to Lyon for the first leg of their round-of-16 tie.
