Juventus and Portuguese star striker, Cristiano Ronaldo has failed to score 50 goals in a year for first time in 8 years.

Since 2011 Ronaldo, while playing for Real Madrid and Portugal maintained a record of netting over 50 goals from January to December.

However, the 33-year-old scored 49 times this season while playing in Madrid and now Juventus in Serie A.

Ronaldo moved to Juventus at the start of the season in a deal worth around £88.3million which ended his eight year run in Madrid.

During the Portuguese captain’s time in Madrid he won three league titles and four Champions League trophies.

Ronaldo’s greatest goal scoring season was in 2013 where the forward netted 69 goals.

The Euro 2016 winner also received five Ballon d’Or awards during his time in Spain’s capital with only Lionel Messi winning the prize the same amount times.

Ronaldo has netted 15 times in his 26 games in all competitions this season including a Champions League strike against his former club Manchester United.

The 33-year-old has played down the middle on occasions for Juventus this season while starting regular in his traditional left-wing position.
