Cristiano Ronaldo sees it all again with Juventus. The Portuguese helped his team on Wednesday with a hit against Napoli (2-0 victory) at the Italian Supercup and thinks that De Oude Dame can rise again this season.
In Serie A, the draft is a bit in Juventus. After nine national titles in a row, Juventus currently stands fifth in almost half of the competition. The backlog of leading AC Milan amounts to no less than ten points, although the Bianconeri still has a race.
After the victory over Napoli, Ronaldo is confident that everything is still possible. “Were back! This is the Juventus we love, this is the team we believe in and this is the spirit that will lead to more important victories.”
The title hasnt kicked the attacker out of his head yet. “Milan and Inter are very strong, but I think we have what it takes to become champion,” he said in conversation with RAI Sport. “Its going to be very difficult, but the Scudetto is definitely another possibility.”
Although Ronaldo had to watch for more than a week in October because of a corona infection, he already has twenty matches and twenty goals behind his name this season. With fifteen hits, he is also top scorer in Serie A.
Matthijs de Lit was not fit enough to join Juventus on Wednesday. Napoli played with former PSV player Hirving Lozano. Dries Mertens, also with a past in Eindhoven, fell in.
