Ronaldo vows to make amends for Manchester United

It’s not the first time that Manchester United’s boy wonder has missed a penalty this season. In December, he was also guilty of hitting a spot kick wide against West Ham, something which led to his team’s 2-1 defeat. At the Nou Camp, the Portuguese forward did it again, although the Daily Mail report that Cristiano Ronaldo is confident of putting Barcelona to the sword at Old Trafford.

He said: “I did not change my style of taking the penalty. I have scored in that corner before this season. Now I will score next week in Manchester.

“It was a difficult game as they kept the ball well, but we defended very well and a 0-0 draw away from home is a good result.

He added: “I don’t understand why the referee did not give me the second penalty but it won’t matter.”

While United are still favourites to progress to the Champions League final, a one-goal advantage would have ensured that they could have attacked more freely on Tuesday. Instead, they’ll have to be extremely wary of Messi, Henry & Co on the counter-attack, knowing the concession of one away goal will leave them needing at least two if they’re to make it to Moscow.
