Although they had already won 6 straight Scudetto before his arrival, Ronaldo has proven to be the difference for the Old Lady on many occasions. But his importance has been obvious this season, with Juve struggling in his absence.
He returned to action for the Bianconerri yesterday and proved this again in the 3-0 bashing of Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League.
He took to his social media page to celebrate scoring 750 career goals and wrote: “𝟕𝟓𝟎 goals, 𝟕𝟓𝟎 happy moments, 𝟕𝟓𝟎 smiles in the faces of our supporters. Thank you to all the players and coaches that helped me reach this amazing number, thank you to all my loyal opponents that made me work harder and harder every day. “

Without Ronaldo, Juventus could beat promoted Benevento in a Serie A clash that ended 1-1.
Despite suffering from COVID-19 and recovered, Ronaldo has so far scored 10 goals in eight games, with 8 coming from the Italian Serie A and two from the three Champions League games he has so far played.
The last game of the group will eventually offer the return of rivalry between him and Lionel Messi at Camp Nou.
Now that Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 750 career goals, what next?
It is no longer news that Ronaldo’s goal in between, Federico Chiesa’s and Alvaro Morata’s goals was the 750th of his career. With such a landmark, what lies ahead for the Portuguese?
Ronaldo has won the domestic league during his stints with Manchester United and Real Madrid. He has also won the Champions League and the FIFA World club cup with the two clubs. Having won the Scudetto and some individual honours with the Old Lady, he is yet to win the Champions League with the Italian ginat.
So, what is missing in his laurel in Champions League and world club cup with the Bianconerri, he would have the opportunity to win the Euros for his country again next year having led them to success the last time.
He will also have the opportunity to lead Portugal to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
But what is immediately in front of the five times world footballer of the year is the bragging right between him and his immediate rival, Messi in next weeks’s UEFA Champions League.
Although Barcelona had not featured the six-times world footballer of the year for the second away game in the Champions League, it is hoped that he is used at Camp Nou next week and we shall await to witness who wins the bragging right.
Let wait and witness the explosive affair between the two world’s best players.
