The Juventus talisman, as usual, proved decisive in a high-pressure match as he guided the team to their first silverware of 2021.
Juventus beat Napoli on Wednesday evening to clinch their ninth Supercoppa Italiana.
Ronaldo opened the scoring four minutes after the hour-mark, pouncing on the loose ball that deflected off the head of Tiemoue Bakayoko and drilling it into the back of the net.
Not only did he break the deadlock with his close-range strike but the five-time Ballon d’Or winner also broke a historic record.
It marked CR7’s 760th goal for club and country as he surpassed Josef Bican to become the greatest goalscorer on the planet.
With the Bianconeri still leading in the dying moments of the game, the tie looked pretty much decided but Alvaro Morata added another just in case to seal a 2-0 win against Napoli.
An ecstatic Ronaldo tweeted after the game: “Very happy with my 4th title in Italy…
“We are back! This is the Juve we love, this is the team we trust and this is the spirit that will lead to the wins we want! Well done, guys! Fino Alla Fine!”
