Although Juventus suffered a damaging 0-1 defeat against Napoli in Serie A 2020-21, Cristiano Ronaldo is optimistic about his side's comeback. After the conclusion of the game, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner took to Instagram and cheered his side with a motivational post. The Portugal talisman claimed that the defeat wouldn't bring them and they'll bounce back emphatically. Ronaldo, who has been in red-hot form lately, had a lacklustre outing against Napoli as he missed out on as many as three occasions to net a goal. As a result, the nine-time champions lost the game 0-1 with Lorenzo Insigne scoring the lone goal of the match.

Let's raise our heads and think about the champions," the 36-year-old wrote on Instagram in Italian while sharing a pic with his Juventus teammates. The comment section got flooded in no time as fans backed the Bianconeri side to bounce back.
