Despite turning 35 years old soon, Ronaldo has come up with performances in recent weeks that suggest he still has plenty left to offer the world of football. In fact, after his brace on the weekend, the Portuguese forward has now scored 10 times since the turn of the year, the most by any player in Europe's top five divisions, according to Transfermarkt.
The former Real Madrid man found the back of the net with two penalty kicks in Juve's 3-0 Serie A win over Fiorentina on Sunday, goals that brought up his 50th strike across all competitions since his arrival at the Bianconeri in 2018.
In terms of the top goalscorers in Europe's best divisions so far this year, behind Ronaldo in second place is his Serie A counterpart Ciro Immobile, who has nine goals to his name in 2020, while Atalanta forward Josip Ilicic is currently third with eight strikes. Tied with him is Olympique Lyon forward Moussa Dembele, followed by new Borussia Dortmund signing Erling Haaland with seven strikes.
A number of other high-profile players feature in the top 10, but there is no place for Blaugrana captain Messi, who has scored just four goals in 2020 so far.
The Argentine has not been at his best of late, and will have to find a strong second wind if he is to catch Ronaldo in this form. Messi is currently six strikes shy of his longstanding rival, averaging a goal once every 135 minutes compared to Ronaldo's ratio of a strike every 54 minutes.
