All Eyes On Him - Cristiano Ronaldo Takes Centre-Stage With Brilliant Bullet-Header In Latest Juventus Win
Never one who likes to shy away from the headlines, the man who’s always competing for the title for Best Player of All Time, Cristiano Ronaldo made sure he was front and centre of an emphatic 3-0 win for Juventus in Serie A over Sassuolo in their latest fixture.
The Portuguese - holder of a record-equalling five Ballon d’Or awards - latched onto a Miralem Pjanic corner for a trademark bullet-header for the second goal of the game at the Stadio Mapei.
Ronaldo celebrated with his patented “Siiiiii!” celebration in which he runs off to the nearest corner, jumps, twirls, and plants his feet in a powerful display of his fitness and power; both the goal and the celebration are available for you to view below.
Sami Khedira and Emre Can scored either side of Ronaldo, with the three points solidifying Juventus’ position at the head of the Italian top tier tree.
The OId Lady remain 11 points clear of nearest ‘challenger’ Napoli and haven’t suffered defeat at all this season as they chase their eighth successive Scudetto.
Since moving to Turin from Real Madrid in a €100million (£88.5m) move last summer, the 34-year-old Ronaldo has scored 18 goals in 23 league appearances, and 20 in 31 appearances in all competitions overall.
He tops the list in Serie A in the goalscorer rankings, having contributed every 111 minutes, as well as providing seven assists.
Juventus next take on Frosinone in the league on February 15th before a highly-anticipated meeting in the Champions League with Atletico Madrid, the first leg being played at the Wanda Metropolitano, allowing Ronny to return to the Spanish capital just months after leaving.
