Cristiano Ronaldo missed an absolute SITTER in the early exchanges of Manchester United against Burnley this evening.
Ronaldo is one of the finest marksmen in football history. His extraordinary goal-scoring record over the years, across different clubs and countries, speaks for itself.
There is not a player on the planet you’d rather have through on goal with only the goalkeeper the beat than CR7, which is why Ralf Rangnick will have been SO confident that Man United were going to score early on against Burnley this evening.

To the amazement of Ragnick, everyone in the ground and those watching at home, however, Ronaldo fluffed his lines and fired what was a golden opportunity high over the crossbar.
You would have bet your house on Ronaldo finding the back of the net from this range, but somehow, Ronaldo’s finishing ability betrayed him at the decisive moment while one-on-one with Wayne Hennessey…
Close for Man Utd 🔴
Cristiano Ronaldo is through on goal, takes a brilliant touch, but his finish is poor!
