Exactly one year ago, Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first hat-trick for Juventus against Cagliari.

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored many braces for the Bianconeri, but there has only been one hat-trick so far. For their delight, The Juve fans screamed “SIIIIU” three times in just 33 minutes back on January 6th, 2019. Moreover, the Serie A champions defeated Cagliari on their way to league leadership alongside Inter Milan.

In fact, as it normally happens when he steps onto the pitch, Ronaldo broke several records on this day. One of the most important ones was becoming the first Portuguese player to score a hat-trick in Serie A.

The Bianconeri had a tough time scoring in the first half and went to the locker room with a goalless draw. However, Cristiano began the second half determined to turn things around for his club. The Portugal captain ended up being involved in all four goals at the Allianz Stadium, netting the goal three times and also assisting Gonzalo Higuain.

We suspect the second hat-trick may be arriving soon, as the Juventus star has scored twice in the last four matches for the club. Perhaps Ronaldo will repeat the deed at this Wednesday night’s clash against AC Milan. Unfortunately, he won’t hear thousands of fans happily screaming his trademark celebration.

Until it happens again, you can check out Ronaldo’s perfect performance against Cagliari below.
