Cristiano Ronaldo joined Juventus this past summer from Real Madrid as he has been doing very well for his new club.
Juve beat Sampdoria this past week-end as Ronaldo scored a few more goals to end the 2018 season on a high note. Ronaldo impressively scored 28 goals in 2018 for Real Madrid (in a half of season) as he finished with one more goal than Gareth Bale (who scored 27 goals in 2018).
Ronaldo also finished second in scoring (for the 2018 season) for Juve as he scored 15 times for his new club which is one less than Paulo Dybala.
Cristiano Ronaldo may have left Real Madrid in the summer to join Juventusbut that has not stopped him from topping Los Blancos’ scoring chart for the calendar year.
The debates over whether Madrid miss their legendary Portuguese forward continue but the statistics speak for themselves, especially when it comes to goals.
Ronaldo ends 2018 on 28 goals for Los Blancos, which is one more than Gareth Bale (27) and ten more than Karim Benzema (18).
Sergio Ramos managed ten goals while Marco Asensio and Isco netted eight each.
Ronaldo‘s feat is made even more remarkable considering the fact that he managed those 28 goals in just 22 goals, while Bale needed 48 matches to score 27 times, and Benezema 53 matches to score 18.
The Juve star’s absence is there for all to see, with Madrid currently the sixth highest scorers in LaLiga this campaign.
With 17 weeks of the season gone, Barcelona, Sevilla, Levante, Celta and Atletico Madrid have all scored more than Los Blancos who have managed just 24, albeit with a game less.
