The Main Records For Cristiano Ronaldo To Beat In 2020
This year may be a landmark for the almost 35-year-old Juventus striker.
For more than ten years, Cristiano Ronaldo has been rewriting the history of football, and this year is unlikely to be an exception. He will try to help Juventus win the Champions League and Serie A, and Euro 2020 for his national team. Along the way, he can achieve individual success.
Most Champions League wins
In 2018, Cristiano and Real Madrid won their fifth Champions League. If Juventus wins this season, the Portuguese will have number six – as much as the current record holder, former Real Madrid forward Francisco Hento. The Spaniard won his trophies from 1956 to 1966.
The first player to become the top scorer in England, Spain, and Italy
One more task with an asterisk. Cristiano is now in fourth place in the scorer race with 10 goals, and if to catch up with João Pedra (11) and Romelu Lukaku (12) does not seem supernatural, it will be very difficult to get around Ciro Immobile with his 17 goals. And it’s not only about the seven-goal difference – there can be no doubt that Ronaldo will have even fewer matches since he will surely get rest in the championship before important games in the Champions League.
Top scorer of the European Championship finals
In the four continental championships, Cristiano scored nine goals for Portugal, matching the record of Michel Platini. One more goal – and CR7 will be the sole owner of the record. This will not be easy to do, because the Portuguese already have Germans and French in the group, but “not easy” doesn’t mean “impossible”.
Top scorer in the national teams history
For the Portugal national team, Cristiano scored 99 goals. He is really close to catch up with Iranian Ali Daei (109 goals), and it is possible that Ronaldo will beat his record in 2020.
