Cristiano Ronaldo’s Strangest Assists
During Juventus’ match against Genoa this afternoon, Cristiano Ronaldo got one of the strangest assists you’ll ever see.
Juventus are no longer in contention to win Serie A, but they are struggling for pride as well as Champions League qualification.
Their impressive string of Scudetto victories is coming to an end, as Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan are just too solid and reliable.
Nonetheless, Cristiano Ronaldo is not the sort to sit back and relax as the season winds down.
The Portuguese legend will be determined to fill his boots, defeat Romelu Lukaku, and finish the season as the Capocannoniere, a title currently held by Ciro Immobile. That is why Ronaldo would have been so irritated if he had missed an absolute sitter against Genoa today.
Fortunately for the seasoned forward, the ball bounced off the crossbar and straight to Alvaro Morata. It resulted in a Ronaldo assist.
