Cristiano Ronaldo added one more title to his trophy cabinet after winning the Serie A 2019-20 with Juventus. Ronaldo, who was rested for the final league fixture against AS Roma, couldn’t have a fairy-tale end but consecutive Serie A league titles in two seasons in Italy will make the Portuguese proud. He is already in the elite list of players to win at least two leagues titles in England, Spain and Italian top-flight. Juventus lost their final match to Roma 1-3 with Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala on the stands.

Ronaldo also failed to beat Lazio forward Ciro Immobile to the ‘Capocannoniere’ trophy, awarded to the highest goalscorer in each Serie A season. The 35-year-old ended the campaign on 31 goals, five goals behind Immobile who also won the European Golden Shoe for the first time in his career. Immobile, who netted 36 times in as many games in Serie A 2019-20, also equalled Gonzalo Higuain’s record of most goals in a single Serie A campaign.

Higuain had scored 36 goals for Napoli in 2015-16, which was the all-time record for Italian top-flight in a single season. Immobile netted against Napoli to equal that record although Lazio were beaten 3-1 by Gennaro Gattuso’s side. Ronaldo, however, won what Immobile couldn’t – the Serie A title.
This was the 32nd trophy for Ronaldo in his 17-year career and second Serie A trophy in his cabinet. “One more! It’s not a bad habit,” the Portuguese captioned the picture of himself standing with the league trophy.
