The English Premier League stole the show over the weekend with the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo, all attention was on the Portuguese International as he played another debut match for Manchester United.
It went well for him and Manchester United as they got an easy win against Newcastle and Ronaldo got a brace in the match. While United were celebrating Ronaldo presence in the team, another club is suffering from his departure.
I paid attention to the Italian league and observed that Juventus aren't doing any good since Ronaldo left the team a few weeks ago. Many football fans didn't see it coming even though I believe that the transfer was been discussed in a closed meeting before we saw the action that was taken by everyone involved in the transfer, I still stand on the assumption that it wasn't a surprise to Ronaldo even though it came as a surprise for the football fans across the globe.
Ronaldo joined Juventus in 2018 from Real Madrid and the forward played a huge part in the team's success throughout his time with the club. He bagged 81 goals in 98 matches and won five titles which included the Seria A title, the Coppa Italian Cup, and the Supercoppa Italiana, his dream of winning the Champions League with the Italian side ended as a dream since he has moved to United.
The 2021/22 campaign didn't start as expected for the Italian giants despite Ronaldo still being in the team. Juventus played a 2-2 draw against Udinese in their opening match with Ronaldo coming in as a substitute for Alvaro Morata.
The forward struggled to get a goal that was disallowed in the match, the goal would have given them all three points in the match. We expected more and hope it would get better the following match but it got worse in absence of Ronaldo and they have lost twice in two games.
They were first embarrassed by Empoli at the Allianz Stadium, they lost by a lone goal at home. Yesterday they suffered another defeat against Napoli and the result sent them straight to the 16th position.
It would be terrible if they continue at this form or would things have been better if they still had Ronaldo?
