Cristiano Ronaldo's sister Elma has aimed at dig at his Juventus teammates after they narrowly missed qualification into quarter finals of the Champions League.

The Bianconeri recorded a 2-1 over Lyon at the Allianz Stadium but were eliminated from the competition due to the away-goal rule.

The recently crowned Serie A champions had lost the first leg by a 1-0 back in February before the three months break.

Ronaldo scored a brace in the match, one from a penalty kick to cancel out Memphis Depay's spot-kick, while the other was a screamer from outside of the 18-yard box.

In the end, CR7 buried his head in the grass after the referee blew the final whistle but his sister Elma was quick to come to his defence at the expense of his teammates.

"You did better than anyone, dear brother," Elma wrote on Instagram. "I’m proud to see you play and to see your dedication but unfortunately you can’t do everything alone.

"You know that football is like that, but you also have to think that you did your best and that you are still the best."

Ronaldo headed straight back into the tunnel after he was left disappointed with the result despite playing his hearts out.

Juventus boss who was sacked after the game praised his team and refused to criticize them in a post-match interview.

"We played a great match. We gave it our all and tried everything.

"We believed it all the way to the end, we regret the first half in the first leg.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo will not blame anyone for Juventus' Champions League ouster despite their 2-1 win over Lyon at the Allianz Stadium on Friday, August 7.

The 35-year-old scored twice to help the Italian League champions have a shot at progressing to the quarterfinals but Memphis Depay's early minute strike denied the Old Lady the chance.

Having suffered a 1-0 defeat in the reverse fixture earlier this year, Juve's woes were compounded when the Dutchman converted the 12th-minute strike from the spot-kick.
