After leaving Real Madrid, Ronaldo was expecting to win his sixth golden ball at the end of the year and surpass Lionel Messi in those awards. However, after two years, everything is the opposite.
What reasons make us thinking that Cristiano Ronaldo will win the 2020 Golden Ball?
1. Serie A
When Cristiano Ronaldo announced in summer 2018 that he was moving to Juventus for new challenges, critics have said that Juventus always win the Italian Championship and that this tournament is not a challenge for Turin.
However, in the 2018/19 season, Ronaldo scored 18 goals for Juventus and was named the best player of the tournament.
Ronaldo has already repeated this figure this year and will likely improve significantly by the end of the season. With Ronaldo’s goals, Juventus have scored exactly 18 points after 22 rounds, and stability throughout the season is crucial to winning the golden Ball.
4. Personal Statistics
Since December, Ronaldo has scored in all Serie A matches. In the last nine rounds, Cristiano has scored 14 goals and one goal assist and is in second place among Serie A’s top scorers.
After a weak start to the season, Ronaldo was dropped from the Golden Boots, but sooner or later, Cristiano always starts scoring. Ronaldo has also managed to score more (22) club goals than Lionel Messi (19) this season.
3. Champions League Playoff
Ronaldo’s favorite tournament has long been the Champions League. Ronaldo has already scored ten goals in the Champions League and continues to show abnormal results in the Champions League playoffs.
An amazing hattrick against Atletico and goals in both matches against Ajax were not enough for Juventus last season, but Ronaldo will do his best this year either.
2. Messi has Problems
According to the Spanish press, Ernesto Valverde’s departure from the team did not make him happy because the Argentine felt comfortable with Valverde.
Since the arrival of Quique Setien, Barcelona struggles too much to achieve results. Setien’s men lost the first place and almost came out of Copa against Ibiza.
The problems in Barca’s defense do not let us think that Barcelona will compete for the top title this season.
1. Euro 2020
Cristiano Ronaldo is the current European champion! Unlike the World Cup, Ronaldo is always phenomenal on Euro.
Ronaldo, along with Michel Platini, is the all-time top scorer in the tournament, and if he scores just one goal at Euro 2020, he will become the only leader in tournament history. Ronaldo also lacks one win to have the most wins in tournament history,
These are the records that Ronaldo can easily break. If Portugal succeeds, the superstar will break many records that will put his name far higher in the history of football.
