Cristiano Ronaldo Finishes 2018 Calendar Year As Real Madrid’s Top Scorer, Second For Juventus
5 hours ago 5.5K Shares
Cristiano Ronaldo has apparently ended the 2018 calendar year on a high note after becoming the top scorer for Real Madrid and finishing as the second highest scorer for Juventus.
That’s right, the 33-year-old Portuguese footballer scored 28 times for Los Blancos, which is one more than second-place Gareth Bale while Karim Benzema came third with 18.
After Juventus signed him in the summer for £99.2m (€112m), the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has continued on his fine goalscoring form in Serie A.
Paulo Dybala leads the top scorers for the Old Lady with 16 goals, but Ronaldo is only one behind him in second place. Meanwhile, Mario Mandžukić secured a third-place finish with 13 goals to his name.
“The team is doing very well, we had an excellent first half to the season, but must keep working to ensure we keep this kind of form in the second half of the season,” Ronaldo told Sky Sport Italia.
“I like VAR, because these are difficult decisions for a referee and we should welcome anything that makes his job easier.”
100 – Cristiano Ronaldo has scored the 100th Juventus goal in 2018 (all competitions). Milestone. – OptaPaolo (@OptaPaolo) 29 December 2018
