Just like when you stick the knife in a ketchup bottle and it all suddenly comes out, Ronaldo has a brace in the last 15 minutes.

It took Cristiano Ronaldo 4 games and 28 shots to score his first goal in La Liga last season. It’s taken him exactly 4 games and 28 shots again to open his Juventus account in Serie A this season.
