But unlike Messi, Ronaldo continues to struggle to find his breakthrough after a long while.
The 36-year-old has produced his 70th free-kick effort for Juventus. 47 times (in 67 percent of the cases), the ball hit the wall. Ronaldo has only scored one free-kick goal at Juventus – against Torino in July 2020.
