This Saturday, Cristiano Ronaldo saved a valuable draw for Juventus in the city classic against Torino. The Bianconero team lost it 2-1, but CR7 appeared ten from the end to decree equality.
While it is equally direct to his personal account, this season could be one of the biggest disappointments of his excellent career. He has ten games to rebuild his way.
As reported from Italian territory, Cristiano never in his 20 years as a professional finished below the third position in the league with his respective team. In both Sporting Lisbon (Portugal), Manchester United (England) and Real Madrid (Spain) he was within the top-3 of the classification.
In the first two seasons with Juventus he was unquestionable champion, but 2020-21 looks pretty regular. Currently his team is fourth in Serie A and although only two points separate him from the third box, having one game less, the performance of the Bianconero team is really worrying.
To this day, the Funchal-born has accomplished more than anyone: he has 24 goals in 25 games played, meaning that his mere presence is a guaranteed goal each day. Even since his arrival in Italian territory, he has added 96 goals. Overwhelming figures.
However, being a purely collective sport, coach Andrea Pirlo has not been able to turn the difficult situation around. His team was eliminated from the Champions League against modest Porto and in the league they have already had two games without winning …
With all this on the table, Ronaldo will have, as already mentioned, ten duels to change history. Exactly next Wednesday this path will begin when it receives neither more nor less than Naples in postponed play. In the future it will have to be measured with Atalanta (V), Fiorentina (V), Milan (L) and Inter (L) as the most outstanding matches.
