Cristiano Ronaldo, Super Cup trophy number 31: 16th goal in the final

Cristiano Ronaldo in the fourth cup raised with Juventus, still with the decisive goal: “It was needed for confidence. With Inter the wrong attitude but it is behind us: the season is long, winning the championship is possible “

Mister Finali does not betray. The goal with which Cristiano Ronaldo channeled and in fact decided the Super Cup against Napoli, the ninth win in the history of Juventus, is the 16th scored in his career by the Portuguese champion in matches with a trophy up for grabs. He has played four for Juventus: in the two in which he scored, this time at Mapei Stadium and in the 2018 Super Cup with Milan, Juventus raised the cup; when he went blank (Supercoppa and Coppa Italia 2019) even the Lady remained dry. A gift to open Andrea Pirlo’s coaching board at the first available opportunity. A confirmation to enrich his own, which between club and national team has come to host Cristiano Ronaldo’s fourth trophy since he joined Juventus: the second Super Cup, in addition to the two championships. In his career he is number 31, to which the 2008 Community Shield and the 2016 European Super Cup, won by United and Real, even if he did not play, should be added.

And now the championship

“It was a difficult match, very difficult, but we had an excellent attitude. Winning this cup is very important to gain confidence: we are very happy ”, said CR7 on TV at the end of the match. Because the showcase is important, it is the trophies that enter the history books, but the confrontation with Naples was also a fundamental step to put the season back on track after Sunday night’s slip with Inter that triggered the alarm: “We need a different attitude, we made a mistake with Inter – CR7 explains -. But it has passed. The important thing was to win today and it is a very important trophy because it can give us confidence for our growth in view of the next matches ”. What does Ronaldo say, there is also Juve for the Scudetto? “I think so. Milan and Inter are very strong, but the season is still long, there is a long way to go and yes, I think we can win: the road is very difficult but I think it is possible ”. Until the end, goal is 34.
