Cristiano Ronaldo has improved important once again for Juventus after his second-half goal set the Bianconeri up for victory in the Italian Super Cup encounter against Napoli. Ronaldo also broke a football’s all-time goals record in the win.
The Super Cup match against Napoli was a crucial encounter that gave the Old Lady their first trophy of the season and it was a perfect day for Cristiano Ronaldo. Meanwhile, it was the superstar’s most vital contribution against the most prominent clubs this season.
Aside from his match-winning performance against Barcelona in December, Italy has been difficult to beat for Ronaldo. However, he ended that now against Napoli with his goal in Super Cup victory. The goal came in the second half during a corner kick right after an attempt he created. Cristiano was up there at the right place at the right time to push the ball inside the net, which gave Juventus the lead.
Also, Ronaldo comes out as the winner over Napoli’s Hirving Lozano, who appeared as the Southern side’s danger man all night. Lozano struck a header in the first half that nearly gave his side the advantage, but a brilliant save from Szczesny denied him. Despite the fact that he didn’t score, the Mexican forward remained as Napoli’s most dangerous man, all night.
But it all went down when Cristiano Ronaldo started coming up with real chances during the second period. Much like the five-time Ballon d’Or winner tends to do much often, he has appeared in yet another final to score a goal that gifted the Bianconeri a new and first title of the season.
Congratulations to Ronaldo and Juventus on their latest victory!
