Juventus Star Cristiano Ronaldo Scores A Screamer To Enhance 'Greatest Of All Time' Status

Cristiano Ronaldo Scored A Thronker As Juventus Beat Empoli
Cristiano Ronaldo Scored A Thronker As Juventus Beat Empoli

Cristiano Ronaldo rarely spends too long away from the limelight and the Juventus star grabbed the headlines with a quite stunning strike during the Serie A match against Empoli on Saturday night.

Ronaldo played a starring role as the Bianconeri came from behind to record an impressive 2-1 win at the Stadio Carlo Castellani, where Francesco Caputo had given the hosts a surprise first-half lead.

Step forward CR7. The former Manchester United and Real Madrid star drew Juventus level from the penalty spot before a quite sensational strike after 70 minutes of an intriguing match gifted Juve the three points.

Ronaldo collected a pass from his teammate, Blaise Matuidi, 25 yards away from goal, and there was only one thought in his mind from that point out. To go for goal.

The 33-year-old strode forward before unleashing a swerving, dipping strike that left the opposition goalkeeper with no chance as the ball flew into the far corner of the net. It is worth watching the replay over and over again to fully appreciate the 'swazz' that was put on the shot from the Portuguese star.

The goal was the seventh in ten Serie A appearances for Ronaldo as he continues to take to Italian football like a duck to water, laying on five assists for goals for his teammates in that time too.

His importance as a match-winner was perfectly illustrated on Saturday evening as Juventus moved seven points clear of Napoli, who host Roma on Sunday night.

Sit back and bask in Ronaldo's 'thronker' by watching the video below, over and over and over again...
