In the latter part of his Real Madrid days, Ronaldo became a terrific box player and pounced on almost every opportunity he got. He made a habit of scoring 40 plus goals in almost every campaign for Los Blancos.

In his first ever season in Italy, Ronaldo has netted 28 times for Juventus, with only one game remaining. Although he has averaged almost 5.6 shots per game, his wasteful finishing in front of goal have cost Juventus several times during the course of the season. Recently released stats also reveal that Ronaldo has been the most wasteful player in the Serie A this season, with as many as 16 big chances missed.

If any player scores 28 goals in their first ever season in Italy, it would go down as an excellent campaign, but when the man in question is Ronaldo, he is certain to be judged on his previous statistics as he has set the bar so high for himself and others.
