3 Academy prospects Paris Saint-Germain didn’t capitalize03 April 2020 / Miguel Coelho
Paris Saint-Germain has an history of wasting their youth talent. Who are they?
It hasn’t been the best season for Cristiano Ronaldo so far. He even spent all November without scoring a single goal with Juventus. However, the 34-year-old Portuguese footballer chained against Sampdoria five consecutive matches scoring between all competitions. The last goal of this streak was to give Juventus the final lead against the Genoa team after the goals of Dybala and Caprari for each team. The Portuguese scored a goal for the memory, finishing off an Alex Sandro cross with the peculiarity that, in his jump, the Portuguese almost passed over his rival. A feat that he managed to do just a couple of months before turning 35. Cristiano showed again that he is far away from his end.
In the 2019/20 season so far, two stages can already be separated in the Cristiano Ronaldo campaign with Juventus: on the one hand, from August to November, and on the other December. The Portuguese player gave the victory to the 'Vecchia Signora' against Sampdoria (1-2) thanks to a brutal header that he could connect thanks to a huge jump in which he even gets to pass over his defender, Nicola Murru, who is 1.8 meters tall. The Portuguese seemed to be suspended in the air, with his hip at the head of the defender, reaching 2.5 meters high with his jump, as the replays on television showed. As it couldn’t be otherwise, the jump, the header, and the goal went around the world in a few minutes.
Alex Sandro’s cross could only have been topped by Ronaldo, who proves to be hungrier than ever in the Turin club. It was Cristiano's 10th league goal, and it came in his fifth consecutive game scoring. In these five games, four in Serie A and one in the Champions League, CR7 has celebrated six goals, leaving the memories of November, when he could not celebrate a single goal with his team, far away.
Juve snatched the leadership from Inter again thanks to his victory in Genoa, which began to forge thanks to a beautiful strike from Dybala, which was later tied by Caprari. Cristiano, just before the break, decided the game thanks to his anthological goal. For his part, Buffon tied the 647 games in Serie A of Paolo Maldini, an absolute record, but Juventus will not play a league game again until January 6, so his solo record will have to wait. Another one who broke a historical record was Maurizio Sarri. The Italian coach celebrated his 100th league victory in his 169th match in the Serie A and is now the fastest manager to reach this milestone in the competition. The previous record of precocity in reaching the 100th victory was in Carlo Ancelotti’s possession, who achieved it in 1994 when he celebrated his 185th match in the tournament.
100 – Maurizio #Sarri has won tonight his 100th game as manager in Serie A in his appearance number 169: he his the fastest manager to reach this milestone among the top italian league managers that made their debut after the 1994/95 season.
