‘Nightmare at Old Trafford’ – What are the top 10 worst defeats of Cristiano Ronaldo’s career?


Manchester United’s Premier League clash against rivals Liverpool turned out to be a nightmare for the Red Devils and Cristiano Ronaldo as they suffered a thumping 5-0 defeat at Old Trafford.

Liverpool took a four-goal lead in the first itself and then further increased their tally in the 50th minute to pile on Manchester United’s misery. Liverpool talisman Mohamed Salah netted a hat-trick and Naby Keita and Diogo Jota scored the other two goals.

The last time Ronaldo faced Liverpool as a Manchester United player, his team lost 4-1 to the Reds at the Old Trafford. It was an evening that Cristiano Ronaldo would like to forget as the defeat is the joint-worst result in his two-decade-long career. Only once before had a Cristiano Ronaldo lost 5-0 in club football which was back in 2010 when Jose Mourinho’s Real Madrid lost to rivals FC Barcelona.

Only on eight occasions in the past, a Cristiano Ronaldo team conceded four or more goals at the club level and in international football. Interestingly, only time Ronaldo’s team conceded more than six goals was when Portugal lost 6-2 to Brazil in an international friendly back in 2008.

Here, we take a look at the 10 worst results in Cristiano Ronaldo’s career. In these 10 losing causes, Ronaldo managed to score only on three occasions.
