Italian Legend Makes A Surprise Comparison Between Ronaldo and Lukaku

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lukaku are the two best-scorers so far in Italian top-flight football, with the Portuguese leading the race for the Capocannoniere crown, though the Belgian is not far behind him.

Romelu Lukaku is a “more complete striker” as compared to Cristiano Ronaldo in the view of former Juventus forward Luca Toni.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who has continued to find the back of the net consistently during the late stages of his career has notched 25 goals in 27 games in Serie A this season. He is also among the frontrunners to win the European Golden Boot.

On the other hand, Romelu Lukaku has also been in red-hot form this season too. The Belgian is the driving force behind Inter Milan’s Scudetto charge, having netted 21 times in 29 league outings.

Despite the numbers speaking in favor of the Juventus talisman, one of the greatest goalscorers of the start of the 21st Century rates the Inter man higher, explaining that he is younger and that he is more involved in a match.

“Lukaku is decisive for his team even when he doesn’t score goals, but CR7 is always world-class,” Luca Toni said on his TikTok page, via Football Italia.

“At this moment in time, I see Lukaku as being a more complete striker than Ronaldo, especially considering he is also younger.”
