Juventus hitman Cristiano Ronaldo produced what could clearly be voted as the miss of the season up till now. Ronaldo completely fluffed his header from a few yards out after being brilliantly picked out by Danilo in a move when Juventus took on Napoli in Serie A.

Ronaldo headed the ball wide as he took his frustration out on the post, kicking it in anger as Juventus wasted a huge chance.

Here's the video of the miss.

While this miss was laughable, Ronaldo redeemed himself soon after as he opened the scoring in the game.

Federico Chiesa excellently worked an opening before squaring a ball to the Portuguese who slotted home to hand Juventus the lead.

That goal meant that Ronaldo has now scored 25 goals in Serie A this season. He has now bagged 25+ league goals in 11 out of the last 12 campaigns.

Needless to say, his critics still think he is on the decline when he has normalised scoring 20+ goals season after season in the prime of his career.
