Cristiano Ronaldo is a modern-day legend and there is no doubt about it.
He has played in various leagues around the world, starting from Portugal to England, then Spain and Italy.
He has finally returned back to Manchester United but the club’s form is disdainful.
The Portuguese has won every possible tournament at the club level, be it his wins in domestic leagues and competitions as well as European competitions.
But like any other sportsperson, even Ronaldo had some embarrassing defeats on the pitch which the forward might want to forget.
Here are the five heaviest defeats of Ronaldo’s league career:
5 . Atletico Madrid 4-0 Real Madrid (2015)
Atletico Madrid’s highest victory over Real Madrid while Cristiano Ronaldo was playing for the Los Blancos was in 2015.
The Madrid derby is one of the most interesting derbies in the world and is mostly dominated by Real Madrid.
But the 2014/15 campaign was different. On 7 Feb 2015 Atletico Madrid beat Real Madrid 4-0 at the Stadio Santiago Bernabeu.
4. Real Madrid 0- 4 FC Barcelona (2015)
Despite Real Madrid winning the Champion League that campaign, they were beaten 4-0 by rivals Barcelona.
The 2015/16 season was the season the Santiago Bernabeu crowds had gathered to watch the most anticipated game.
But the Los Blancos was dominated throughout the game and goals from Suarez, Neymar and Iniesta sealed the victory for La Blaugrana.
3. Brighton 4-0 Manchester United (2022)
Manchester United had a difficult 2021-22 season.
The campaign couldn’t get any worse for the Red Devils following their 4-0 loss to Brighton.
Their defense was in total chaos against a Brighton side known for hitting the back of the net often.
The shock could be seen on Cristiano Ronaldo’s face who tried his best for the Old Trafford this campaign.
2. FC Barcelona 5-0 Real Madrid (2010)
The defeat was one of the most embarrassing defeats of Cristiano and then manager Jose Mourinho’s career came at the Camp Nou on 29th November 2010.
David Villa (2), Pedro, Xavi, and Jeffren provided the goals. It was a shocking defeat for the Los Blancos since they had visited the Camp Nou with 7 consecutive wins and was soaring in confidence.
1. Manchester United 0-5 Liverpool (2022)
Man United’s loss to their biggest rivals Liverpool will be the most painful to Cristiano Ronaldo.
On October 24, 2021, Liverpool visited the Old Trafford and grabbed one of their biggest wins of the season.
The highlight of the match was the hattrick from Mohammed Salah, as Paul Pogba received a red card in the 60 minute which left Man Utd with 10 men on the pitch.
