Despite missing six games in 2020, the former Real Madrid is still waxing strong for the Bianoneri on the domestic and intercontinental scene.

CR7 has scored ten Serie A goals and four Champions League strikes in the new campaign despite being slowed down with coronavirus in October while on international duty.

The highlight of Ronaldo's year was when Juventus defeated Barcelona by 3-0 in the Champions League at Camp Nou.

It was sweet revenge for the Old Lady after losing the first leg to La Blaugrana by 2-0 without their talisman in their matchday squad due to coronavirus.

Ronaldo scored two penalties in the game and helped his side top the group going into the Champions League round of 16.

The 3-1 win over Genoa the past weekend saw the ex-Man United main man score another two penalties to increase his tally for the season.

Other top-scoring strikers on the last include Borussia Dortmund's Haaland (23), Inter Milan's Lukaku (20), Liverpool's Mohamed Salah (20) and AC Milan's Zlatan Ibrahimovic (20).
