Vidal failed to convert from the penalty spot in the 82nd minute of Juve's 2-2 draw with Cesena on Sunday.

Vidal simply missed his attempt to the left, rather than forcing Cesena keeper Nicola Leali to make a save. He has been struggling of late, with his last goal coming back on Jan. 11 against Napoli, and though he remains a fixture in the starting XI, his penalty-taking duties could be under review.

Vidal has dealt with a knee issue this season, but it hasn't stopped the Chilean from making his usual important impact, as Vidal's five goals rank second on the league's highest-scoring team. On his current pace, Vidal appears poised for a third straight double-digit goal season for Juventus.
