Cristiano Ronaldo Misses Open Goal From Seven Yards In Real Madrid Win (VIDEO)

Cristiano Ronaldo may have scored his fourth goal of the season for Real Madrid at Rayo Vallecano, but he also put forward a contender for miss of the season.

The Portuguese contrived to loft the ball onto the crossbar with an open goal gaping during Madrid's 2-0 win in their re-arranged match on Monday.

Manchester United supporters with long memories will however remember the forward's infamous miss at Sheffield United nearly six years ago. The Reds held on for a 2-1 win against the Blades however.
