As part of the fourth UEFA Champions League match of the tournament, Cristiano Ronaldo scored again after several months. 

Cristiano Ronaldo hadn’t scored a single UEFA Champions League goal this season until today. Many different situations didn’t allow the Juventus star to get on the scoreboard so far in his favorite competition. Last weekend’s brace against Cagliari gave him enough confidence to recover from the low form he experienced after contracting Covid-19.

Juventus needs the best possible Cristiano Ronaldo this season if they want to have a shot at winning this year’s tournament. Scoring goals like the one he got today help him take one step closer to his top form as one of the best players in the world.

Ferencvaros scored an initial opener during the first half, which was the exact motivation Ronaldo needed to get fired up. With more than five minutes left on the clock. Cristiano released a long-range shot from outside the box to score the equalizer for Juventus. 

Ronaldo gets closer to King Pele. 

With his goal against Ferencvaros during the first half, Cristiano Ronaldo is only 18 goals behind King Pele as the all-time top-scorer in football history. At 767 goals, the Brazilian legend is the all-time top scorer for both club and country in official matches.

Ronaldo’s goal against Ferencvaros leaves him at 749 goals with the second half still to be played. Perhaps by the time this game ends at Juventus’ stadium, Cristiano will get a bit closer to the legendary Brazil international. Needless to say, we are convinced Cristiano Ronaldo will end his career at the top of this list as the greatest goal-scorer who ever lived.

Not even Lionel Messi might be able to reach these numbers Ronaldo is leaving behind him. It’s entirely possible that Cristiano can top 800 goals by the time he retires. He is a little over 50 goals short of that magic number after all.
