The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has not had much luck from dead balls since his shock exit from Spain to Italy.
In fact, it has taken Ronaldo 43 attempts to score a free-kick for Juventus.
And, as with everything Ronaldo, there is the question of Lionel Messi.
Before his strike last night, Ronaldo’s last goal from a free-kick at club level was in the 2017 Club World Cup.
Argentinian maestro Messi had scored a whopping 16 free-kicks for Barcelona as at that time.
Ronaldo has been in stunning form for Juventus since football returned, scoring four goals and adding two assists in four games.
Football legend Gianluigi Buffon also broke Paolo Maldini’s Serie A appearance record after starting for Juve, who are chasing a ninth successive Serie A title.
It was his 648th game in the Italian top flight.
