The Bianconeri continued their long-running domestic tradition in the previous year by celebrating yet another Scudetto success.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored 31 times in 33 games to guide Juventus to a ninth straight Serie A title triumph in 2019-20.

The mercurial forward finished third in the European Golden Shoe rankings, only behind Lazio’s Ciro Immobile and Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski.

Had it not for his red-hot scoring form, Juve would have struggled a lot last season, but in spite of that, the fans do not consider CR7 to be the best player of 2020.

According to Tuttojuve, via Juvefc.com, the Bianconeri faithful believe Matthijs de Ligt was better last season.

The Dutch center-back has become a fan favorite at the Allianz Stadium and the supporters identify him as one of the most reliable players.

He impressed with his partnership with Leonardo Bonucci at the back while Giorgio Chiellini was facing injury problems last season. 

The report also adds that while the Juve fans are well aware of Ronaldo’s value in the team and that he will be crucial in this season’s title race, De Ligt will also play a very important role and that his presence will help improve the team’s form.
