Cristiano Ronaldo has vowed to make amends after missing a penalty against Barcelona by scoring in the second leg at Old Trafford.
The Portuguese winger squandered a wonderful opportunity to claim an away goal for Manchester United when he missed from the penalty spot just two minutes into the goalless draw at Camp Nou.
Despite his penalty miss, Ronaldo was happy with the result and is confident United can secure the result that will take them through to next month’s final in Moscow.
“Well it was a tough game,” Ronaldo told Sky Sports 2. “They keep the ball a lot I think we defended well, we play well and you know 0-0 away is a good result.”
Ronaldo insisted he never changed his penalty style ahead of his spot-kick and is confident he will be on target on next week’s return leg.
“I didn’t change my style [for the penalty]. I scored a few penalties in that side but today I didn’t score – no problem,” added Ronaldo.
“But now I will score in Manchester.”
The United winger was convinced United should have been awarded a second penalty when he appeared to be blocked inside the box by Barca defender Rafael Marquez just before the half hour mark.
“I think he touched me. But the referee didn’t give a penalty,” he added. “I don’t know why, I don’t understand.
“But 0-0 is a good result now we play at home and I think we are going to win.
“They kept the ball a lot but they didn’t create great chances we created more chances than Barcelona.
“0-0 is a good result if we scored a goal it is better for us. We didn’t score but 0-0 is good.”
