Cristiano Ronaldo has been a shadow of himself in recent weeks in the colours of Italian Serie A giants Juventus and he showed no signs of returning to form at the weekend as the Old Lady dropped further points in the race for Champions League football.

Ronaldo and Juventus face a big battle in the quest to qualify for the Champions League next season with fifth-placed Napoli on their trail. Only the top four teams will represent Italy in Europe's premier club competition next season.

Juventus dropped more points in the Champions League race at the weekend following the 1-1 draw at the home of Fiorentina. Cristiano Ronaldo was largely ineffective as his team came from a goal down to secure a point in Florence.

Ronaldo Linked With A Return To Real Madrid

Juventus superstar forward Cristiano Ronaldo has continued to be linked with a return to Real Madrid even though it is looking quite unlikely that he will be making the move anytime soon. Ronaldo left the Santiago Bernabeu in 2018 after it appeared that the club's president Florentino Perez refused to agree to his contract demands. After his departure, there were talks about him not being properly honored as well as he should be, especially judging by the fact that he left the Los Blancos as their highest ever goalscorer.


Barcelona skipper Lionel Messi has been able to close the gap on rival Cristiano Ronaldo on the list of the leading goalscorers in the Champions League after he found the back of the net during the disappointing defeat at the hands of French club Paris Saint Germain (PSG) last night. Lionel Messi and his Barcelona teammates were on the end of a 4-1 thumping at the hands of visitors PSG in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie.

Juventus attacker Cristiano Ronaldo is fondly called Mr. Champions League as he has 132 goals in the competition. Lionel Messi is the closest player to him and the petite Argentine was on 118 goals before Barcelona played hosts to PSG at the Nou Camp on Tuesday night. Messi took his tally to 119 goals thus closing the gap on Cristiano Ronaldo when he gave Barcelona the lead during the PSG game.

When you talk about records in football, hardly will the name Cristiano Ronaldo not come to your mind.

The former Sporting Lisbon, Manchester United, and Real Madrid superstar has been shattering records for most of his career as he has also been setting new ones.
