Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus are breaking more and more records. They have won 14 of the 15 league games they have played so far this season, and it’s the best start to a season since, 1994 – the same time 3 points for a win was introduced. Cristiano, is the first Juventus player, to scored 10 goals in 14 matches, since the 1957/1958 season.
LONG TIME NO GOAL…
But, the start of season gave no indication this was about to happen. After the first three matches, CR7, was without a goal. It was the perfect time for critics and journalists to highlight this and question just how good he is. Unfortunately for them, everything got back on track and the former Real Madrid star started scoring goal regularly again. After 320 minutes of waiting, he touched the ball just in front of the Sassuolo’s goal line and this was the moment. As if that was not enough, he added one more goal 15 minutes later, and at that point, everyone knew – normal service resumed!

LET’S COMPARE CR7 FROM REAL AND CR7 FROM JUVENTUS
A lot of people love comparing his appearances for Real Madrid to his performances for Juventus, so lets take a look and see if the start to the current season is better than the previous one? For CR7, for sure, it is. One year ago he was suspended for the first 4 games in LaLiga and in his first 15 league matches for Real, he scored only 4 goals and we’re sure he wanted to forget about this period as fast as possible. That said, the previous season in general wasn’t as bad as it started and Ronaldo finished it with 26 goals in 27 league matches – impressive, as always!
The beginning of the current season wasn’t perfect too, but there were less consequences than a year ago. Beyond the lack of goals in first three league matches, he got a red card in the Champions League match against Valencia, but he came back after a one match suspension and scored a screamer in the rematch against his former club – Manchester United.
|Cristiano Ronaldo||Shot conversion||Completed passes|
|Juventus FC 2018/19||13%||88%|
|Real Madrid 2017/18||15%||82%|
|Real Madrid 2016/17||15%||80%|
Now we all are waiting to see if he can finish the current season with better stats than his last season with Real Madrid. It may be difficult, but of course not impossible. If he can improve his scoring rate, then anything can happen. For now, the fact is that he’s not the top scorer in this great league, the top spot belongs to the young, Polish, golden boy – Krzysztof Piątek, who leads the great CR7, by a single goal.
