Ronaldo could not believe he was not given a penalty

Juventus’ Champions League last-16 first leg clash got off to the worst possible start as Rodrigo Bentancur gifted Porto the lead with a shocking back pass after just 61 seconds.

Bentancur sold Wojciech Szczęsny short, which led to Mehdi Taremi sliding in to put Porto in front.

And Andrea Pirlo’s side got off to another poor start at the beginning of the second-half as they were 2-0 down just a minute in thanks to Moussa Marega’s goal.

Federico Chiesa halved the deficit with eight minutes to go, but Porto held on for a crucial win.
