Reigning Supercoppa champions Juventus lost to Coppa Italia champions Lazio in the 2019-20 Supercoppa Italiana final in Riyadh. The result brought to an end to Cristiano Ronaldo's incredible run of success in tournament finals for club and country.

The 34-year-old forward, despite being in a rich vein of form recently, failed to score in the Saudi capital as the Bianconeri fell to a 1-3 defeat. This marked Ronaldo's first reverse in 6 years in a tournament final for club or country, since a 1-2 defeat to Atletico Madrid in the 2012-13 Copa del Rey final.

Ronaldo's only other tournament final defeat before the Lazio reverse came in the 2004 Euro final on home soil, when the then teenager and his Portugal team failed to score in the 1-0 defeat to Greece.

Let us now have a look back at Ronaldo's streak of 14 consecutive successes in tournament finals for club and country.
