'We Want To Get Him His Sixth Ballon D'Or' – CR7 Earns More Praise

After he continued his scoring streak with a brilliant goal against Roma on Wednesday night, Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has earned yet more praise for the excellent form he has been in.

The 34-year-old opened the scoring in the Bianconeri's 3-1 win over Roma in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals with a brilliantly struck effort with his left foot in the 26th minute of the clash.

Ronaldo has scored 19 times so far this season for Juve, and is now just nine strikes short of his 28-goal tally for the 2018/19 campaign.

After the Italian giants qualified for the semi-finals of the cup competition, manager Maurizio Sarri praised the former Real Madrid man, saying the squad is determined to aid the Portuguese in winning a sixth Ballon d'Or.

"Ronaldo is in extraordinary physical and mental condition," he said, according to 24/7 News Online.  

"He is continuing at an impressive pace and has extraordinary skills. He is very well physically. In terms of explosiveness, he is good. He takes great care of the details.

"Ronaldo is a champion, we want to help him win the sixth Ballon d'Or, it would make us all happy."

Ronaldo's eternal rival Lionel Messi won his sixth Ballon d'Or in December last year, which might be something the Juventus man is using as motivation.
