From Clasico horror show vs Barcelona to Champions League bullying by AC Milan – Cristiano Ronaldo’s 10 big game flops

After another disappointing Clasico display against the Catalans last Saturday, we catalogue the former Ballon d’Or winner’s high-profile flounders.

Cristiano Ronaldo has come under fire again following Saturday’s inept performance for Real Madrid in their 3-1 loss at home to a Barcelona side who are not only his club’s fiercest foes, but who have also become his own personal arch nemeses.

Regarded as one of the finest players in the world today, the Portuguese ace has often been criticised for not delivering in the biggest games when his teams need him the most.

From his development as a precocious teenager when he first arrived at Manchester United, to his glory years when he labelled himself “the first, second and third best player in the world”, through to the present day at Real Madrid where he has been in endless pursuit of Lionel Messi, Ronaldo has had his low points on the big stage.

Here, we look at some of his most high-profile disasters for club and country.
