As club football returns after the long international break, Cristiano Ronaldo scores twice for Juventus on Saturday night against Cagliari in the Allianz Stadium. Ronaldo and Juventus returned to winning ways against Cagliari in Serie A following a 2-0 win over the visitors.
The Portuguese ace utilized the opportunities presented to him in the first half to impact their first game after the international break. It must have taken the hosts long to find a breakthrough in this fixture, but Cristiano Ronaldo’s fine form means goals would certainly come. Juventus and Ronaldo had to wait until the final stages of the first period before the 35-year-old unleashed a beautiful long-range effort that opened the scoreboard for his side.
The goal was his trademark solo effort from the left side of the pitch that reminded everyone that watched that he’s still at the top of his game. But like we know, he’s always hungry for more goals and he didn’t relent as he kept pushing for more goals with his teammates. In fact, Ronaldo was more lively than before the international break after getting eliminated from the Nations League.

Cristiano Ronaldo Scores Twice Before The Break
Just as we thought he was about to go to the half-time break with his earlier goal, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner responded in style. When a corner was handed to Juventus, Ronaldo was all alone unmarked at the far post. As the corner was swiped in, a header from Demiral fell to his part, which he was quickly reacted to well to grab his second of the night.
As the teams returned after the half-time break, Juventus and Ronaldo pushed for more goals but it never came. Although he had a chance to grab a hat-trick but he selflessly stepped over the ball for approaching Bernadeschi, who couldn’t beat the Cagliari goalkeeper at the near post.
A win, a brace for Ronaldo, and a clean sheet for the Bianconeri is an impressive way to restart club football for the Juventus team. Cristiano Ronaldo is now with 8 goals in 5 league appearances this season. Only Zlatan Ibrahimovic has the same number of goals in the Italian Serie A at the point of writing.
