Ronaldo back on fire

Cristiano Ronaldo followed up his stunning long-range goal ten days ago with another special strike from a free-kick as Juventus beat local rivals Torino to edge closer to the Serie A title.

In scoring in the 4-1 derby victory, Portugal captain Ronaldo reached another notable career achievement as he became the first Juve player to reach twenty-five league goals since 1961.

Paulo Dybala opened the scoring for Juventus with a well taken individual goal, before Ronaldo registered an assist after travelling with the ball from inside his own half to the edge of the Torino area and feeding Juan Cuadrado who finished with aplomb. Andre Belotti pulled one back for Torino on the stroke of half-time from the penalty spot. Ronaldo restored Juve’s two-goal advantage on the hour mark when he dispatched a superb free-kick into the top corner, giving veteran Torino goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu little chance. Speaking after the match, Ronaldo told reporters: “I really needed that free kick goal so I could get some confidence back. We knew it would be a difficult game, but we worked hard, won and are now putting pressure on Lazio.”

Ronaldo’s strike takes him to twenty-five Serie A goals, scored in just twenty-six appearances, to become the first Juventus player to reach the milestone since Omar Sivori nearly sixty years ago. CW

Ronaldo remains one of the best players in world football this season. Indeed he's the best in Europe for now. He has played for four different clubs in four countries eg, Portugal, England, Spain and Italy showing tremendous versatility, composure, confidence and agility. By my estimation, Ronaldo is the G.O.A. T. The best this season.
