Cristiano Ronaldo finally got to the score sheet in Champions League after several months following his equalizer for Juventus in the fourth UEFA Champions League match against Ferencvaros on Tuesday night.
The UEFA Champions League highest goalscorer in the history hasn’t scored a single goal in the tournament this season until yesterday. Meanwhile, different didn’t allow the Juventus ace to get on the scoreboard so far in his favoured competition. However, after picking a brace against Cagliari over the weekend, the 35-year-old headed into this encounter with enough confidence to recover from the low form he experienced after testing positive for coronavirus.
For the Juventus team, they need the best possible Cristiano Ronaldo this season should they want to have a shot winning this year’s tournament. Plus scoring the kind of screamer that we are going to see below will definitely help him get closer to his top form as one of the best players in the world.
The visiting side tried to pull a shocker early in the game as they were the first to open the score in the first half. But with Ronaldo in the team, Juventus only need a moment of magic from their superstar, and when the moment came, he grabbed it duly. It was more than five minutes until the end of the first half when Cristiano Ronaldo unleashed a long-range shot from outside the box to score the equalizer for his side.
Cristiano Ronaldo Edges Closer To Pele’s Records
Following his goal against Ferencvaros during the first half, Cristiano Ronaldo is just 18 goals away from joining King Pele as the all-time top-scorer in football history. The Brazilian legend is the all-time top scorer for both club and country in official games with his recorded as 767 goals.
Ronaldo is now with 749 goals after scoring against Ferencvaros in the first half. With the 35-year-old still hitting the ground running, there is needless to say that we’re convinced that he will end his career at the top of this list as the greatest goal-scorer ever lived. Some though would still argue, but not even Lionel Messi might be able to reach these numbers that Cristiano Ronaldo is leaving behind him.
Moreover, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner could reach up to 800 career goals before he retires. Besides, he is only a little over 50 goals short of that number to come true!
