Cristiano Ronaldo has lost his first Cup Final in over seven years, as untilJuventus capitulated to Lazio today, he was unbeaten since 2013.
The superstar immediately took the silver medal off his neck and went straight back to the dressing room, not waiting to see Lazio lift the Supercoppa Italiana.
The Aquile won 3-1 in Riyadh and won this trophy for the second time in the last three seasons, when they had also beaten Juve 3-2.
It’s understandable that Ronaldo was not entirely sure of the protocol for being on the losing side in a ceremony like this, as he hadn’t experienced it in over seven years.
The last time Ronaldo was in the losing side of a Final was May 17, 2013, when Real Madrid were beaten 2-1 by local rivals Atletico Madrid in extra time.
Between club and international level, that was followed by 12 consecutive victories until he encountered Lazio.
CR7 has played two Finals at Juventus and won the first, scoring the goal to beat Milan 1-0 in the Supercoppa Italiana in January 2019.
