Cristiano Ronaldo has produced some incredible statistics for Juventus in Serie A


Cristiano Ronaldo has now added the Serie A title to his remarkable trophy collection.

Juventus secured their eighth consecutive Scudetto on Saturday afternoon with a 2-1 win over Fiorentina and it was a historic moment for the club's record signing.

Victory at the Allianz Stadium ensured that Ronaldo became the first player in history to win Europe's three most prestigious league crowns: the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A.

The only person who can vaguely match that record is Jose Mourinho but, of course, he achieved that feat from the technical area as opposed to the pitch itself.

One of the biggest criticisms levelled against Lionel Messi is the fact he's spent his whole club career at the same team, something that can't be said of his eternal rival.

Juventus win Serie A crown

Ronaldo will be somewhat disappointed that he wasn't able to bring European success to Turin this season, with the Italian champions crashing out against Ajax.

However, it has still been an impressive debut season for Ronaldo in his fourth country playing club football and he has produced some incredible statistics along the way.

When you consider Juventus currently boast a 20-point lead at the top of Serie A, it would be easy to suggest that the Old Lady would have been victorious without their new super star.

Besides, it seems like ages ago that AC Milan lifted the league title back in 2011.


Ronaldo's impressive statistics

Yet the statistics tell a different story and it seems the title race would have gone down to the wire if it wasn't for Ronaldo's game-changing goals.

That's because his Juventus goals directly won 16 points in Serie A this season - the biggest team contribution from any player in Italy in 2018-19.

And if you take 16 points away from Juventus' current tally, their lead over Napoli would shrink to three points and Carlo Ancelotti's men have a game in hand.

Some of Ronaldo's other achievements in Italian football this season include:

  • First player in Serie A history to score in nine consecutive away matches
  • Ronaldo has scored against 13 different teams this league campaign
  • Scored the most goals (12) during the last half an hour of Serie A games
  • Attempted the most shots (165) and registered the highest number of shots on target (65)
  • Accumulated four braces, three of which came at the Allianz Stadium

It hasn't been the greatest season of Ronaldo's career, but it's still been pretty remarkable.

Of course, what makes all the statistics so impressive is the fact it's his first season in a completely new country and he recently turned 34. 

Ronaldo has experienced a slight drop in form since leaving Real Madrid, but continues to prove that age is just a number and will be hoping to build on his achievements next year.

Juventus v ACF Fiorentina - Serie A

Duvan Zapata, Krzysztof Piatek and Fabio Quagliarella have emerged as the leading contenders for the Golden Boot, yet Ronaldo still has five games to close the gap.

No matter how many goals he goes on to score, though, nobody has made a bigger individual contribution than him this season. Very well played, Cristiano.
