Cristiano Ronaldo failed to shine back in his home town as Juventus lost to Porto. Ronaldo on his return to his motherland on Wednesday February 17 could not save his Italian outfit against FC Porto.

The striker failed to get any meaningful contribution in the game as it quietly slipped away from his grasp.

Porto went ahead in the second minute through Taremi who surprised the Juventus defense. The goal came as a shocker as most fans expected Juventus to win easily.

The Portuguese team maintained their lead into the halftime break and came back with the same momemntum. A minute into the second half Porto scored again albeit using the same weakness they saw in Juventus.

Marega put Porto 2-0 up against a struggling Juventus who had lost to Napoli prior to this Champions League clash.

Juventus got an all important away goal through Federico Chiesa in the 82nd minute to at least give them a breather for the second leg in Italy.

Prior to the meeting, Porto had failed to win against Juventus in 5 attempts. They had lost 4 times and only managed a draw.
