◼️ The top scorer in the history of the competition starts defending the jersey of the last club he scored against. His first rival: Valencia.
Cristiano Ronaldo kicks off a new edition of the Champions League, perhaps one of the most special of his career to start it with another shirt after his transfer from Real Madrid to Juventus during this passing market and after almost a decade as a Madridista.
The top scorer in the history of the continental tournament wants to increase his account now as ‘bianconeri’, after having scored 15 goals defending United’s shirt and another 105 with Real Madrid.
The last goals as merengue in the Champions League were against Juventus, his current team. The Luso was the author of the penalty that ended up eliminating the Turinese in the semifinals of the previous edition, on April 11, 2018, and days before had scored twice, on April 3, including the famous bicycle-kick in his new stadium, the Juventus Stadium.
The destination has placed him in the hype and as a first game having to visit the field of the only Spanish team that could match Juventus in the group: the Mestalla of Valencia. A field that is well known and in which he has already left his signature on more than one occasions, but never as a juventino.
