Stats show how Cristiano Ronaldo's game has changed in his year with Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo has spent a season with Juventus.

Cristiano Ronaldo's move to Juventus last summer didn't exactly come out of nowhere - it was rumoured for months.

Despite that, it was still a shock when it happened, purely because no one thought he'd leave Real Madrid for Serie A.

But he did just that and one year on, we can start judging his impact. It's difficult, though.

There has undoubtedly been success as Juventus won Serie A once again, with Ronaldo currently their top scorer.

He almost single-handedly got them past Atletico Madrid in the Champions League, too, with a second-leg hattrick.

But then they've actually won less than last year after being knocked out of the Coppa Italia for the first time since 2014.

And on an individual level, Ronaldo is only the joint-3rd top scorer in Serie A, alongside Krzysztof Piatek and behind Fabio Quagliarella & Duvan Zapata.

One way to get a better look at Ronaldo's Italian adventure is by looking at his stats per-90 compared to his last year with Real.

And some graphics released by StatsBomb allow us to do just that.

There are a few particularly interesting differences between the two seasons.

His xG, for one, has dipped from 0.78 to 0.57, representing a significant drop. He has exactly one less shot each game, too, while his touches in the opposition box have fallen from 21.58 at Real to 15.04 with Juve.

More positively, Ronaldo shoots slightly more often (every five touches, to seven last season) and also dribbles slightly more. Then there's his defensive contribution; Ronaldo also presses more often than he did with Real.

One other big difference is in his turnovers (giving the ball away). Ronaldo has gone from 2.3 with Real to 3.39 with Juve, meaning he gives the ball away at least once more a game.

So, why the drops? Is Ronaldo getting on a bit and starting to show his age?

Honestly, you'd argue that it's natural for any player moving teams and countries to slow down a bit. Then there's the fact that Serie A is a more defensive league than La Liga.

No, Ronaldo isn't quite the same as he was with Real - but it isn't too worrying right now. You wouldn't put it past him to get right back on track next season.
