The Portuguese striker struck again with Juventus. The Old Lady dominated Cagliari (2-0) on Saturday night as part of the 8th day of Serie A, thanks to a brace from Cristiano Ronaldo, his third since the start of the season.
In less than two months, Cristiano Ronaldo will celebrate its 36th birthday. And, even if it means repeating itself, the impression that time has very little effect on its performance is not really one. Juventus have once again turned to the talent of the Portuguese international to overcome Cagliari, visiting Piedmont on Saturday night for the 8e Serie A matchday.
In less than five minutes, CR7 settled the case and we are not talking about a hang-up goal here. Shifted by Alvaro Morata to the left side of the area, the number 7 bianconero emerged from the marking by two hooks before triggering from the right. His speed of execution hit the mark (1-0, 38e), like his clever placement on this corner hit by Cuadrado.
60 Serie A goals
Being forgotten at the far post, Cristiano Ronaldo took back the ball and closely deceived Alessio Cragno (2-0, 42e). This double is the third of the season in Serie A after those achieved on the 1er November in Spezia (1-4, 6e day) and on September 27 in Rome (2-2).
Ronaldo now has 8 goals in five matches played in the league, 60 since his arrival in Serie A in the summer of 2018. The old people salute you could have said Gigi Buffon, 42, tenured tonight in the cages of Juventus.
