Juventus relegated, Cristiano Ronaldo broke a record that was not enough


For the first time since 2010, Cristiano Ronaldo was knocked out of the Champions League already in the quarterfinals. After three consecutive wins with Real Madrid in the factory, CR7 moved to Juventus and discovered that his marvelous personal performances are no longer enough: last year he was eliminated in the quarter-finals and tonight (Friday) it happened against Lyon. Although the Portuguese star turned a 1-0 deficit into a 1-2 victory with a double (43, 60), the old lady was eliminated due to the 1-0 loss from the first game, and due to the away goal of Memphis Depai (12) tonight. Maurizio Sari ends the season with an unconvincing championship, a loss in the Italian Cup final and relegation from Europe already in the quarterfinals. No wonder the name exchange that is about to replace it is heating up.

It is doubtful that this will comfort him, but Ronaldo tonight scored his 37th goal of the season, thus breaking at the age of 35 the record for goals for one season for the Juventus player who held 95 years until tonight.

“Of course it’s disappointing,” Leonardo Bonucci concluded. “We knew that Lyon would wait for us with 10 players behind the ball and make it halfway through. We created a lot of opportunities, but in football you can create a lot of opportunities and still not meet the goal. It’s a shame. We should have been better in the first game in France. Asked if this is a season of failure, the veteran brakeman said: “This is a strange season, we found ourselves playing into July and August. We won the championship, but we knew in the new format anything could happen in the Champions League. We did everything we could.”

Miram Pjanic, who recorded his last game for the club before moving to Barcelona, ​​added: “It is unusually disappointing, we really wanted to qualify. It is not allowed to take away from the achievement of winning the championship, but this club can aim higher. “The last few months have not gone as we wanted, I still do not know why.”
