He is one of the most famous and charismatic players in the game and whether or not you are a fan of Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo, you surely have to admire all that he has achieved in football.
In Spain, he achieved everything with Real Madrid including La Liga and Champions League trophies so perhaps CR7 felt he needed a new challenge when he made an unexpected switch to Juventus after the 2018 World Cup.
His current club are multiple winners of Italy’s Seria A and have been recent finalists in Europe’s Champions League. Juve continue to challenge for all major trophies and are a huge draw for the TV Cameras. Juventus are also prominent in bookmakers’ enhanced odds deals and many of these also focus on Ronaldo himself.
The Portuguese forward made his debut for Sporting Lisbon at the age of just 17 and he quickly came to the attention of a number of major clubs across Europe. His dribbling and skill on the ball were phenomenal and although his scoring record at club level in Portugal wasn’t particularly high, it wouldn’t be long before Sporting received a substantial bid for Ronaldo’s services.
The move came in 2003 when Cristiano crossed to Manchester United for a fee of £12.4Million which made him the most expensive teenager in history at the time. It was at Old Trafford that Ronaldo really developed into a World Class player and the Portuguese was behind many of the club’s major triumphs.
Six years later, he was on the move again to Real Madrid having left United with an overall goal scoring record of 118 goals from 292 games. Those are impressive stats for a man who didn’t play as a natural centre forward but he has since eclipsed those while playing in Spain. As he left Real Madrid in the summer of 2018, CR7 with a scarcely believable record of 450 goals in 438 games for Real. With that record of more than one goal every game, it’s no wonder that the bookmakers look to include Cristiano Ronaldo in a number of enhanced odds promotions and they will continue to do so as he moves to Italian football.
Ronaldo made his full international debut for Portugal in August 2003 when his Portugal side beat Kazakhstan 1-0. His rise was rapid and he was subsequently included in the national squad that travelled to the European Championships and it was there that he scored his first senior goal, in a group match against eventual winners Greece.
Cristiano took the national captaincy between 2006 and 2012 and while his Portugal side were a threat at major tournaments, they were considered a one-man team and not good enough as a squad to claim a major trophy. All that changed in 2016 of course when the country won the European Championships, playing most of the final without Ronaldo who had sustained an injury.
At the start of the 2018/19 domestic season, Cristiano Ronaldo’s record at full international level shows 85 goals from 154 games so once again, you can expect to see a number of enhanced odds built around the player whenever Portugal are in major tournament action.
Recent Scoring Record
Here is Ronaldo’s scoring record in major competitions from across the last few seasons.
|Season||La Liga||Copa Del Rey||Champions League|
|2017/18||26 goals in 27 matches||0 goals in 0 matches||15 goals in 13 matches|
|2016/17||25 goals in 29 matches||1 goals in 2 matches||12 goals in 13 matches|
|2015/16||35 goals in 36 matches||0 goals in 0 matches||16 goals in 12 matches|

|2013/14||31 goals in 30 matches||3 goals in 6 matches||17 goals in 11 matches|
While his record in the domestic cup competitions may not be quite so prolific, Ronaldo has really come alive in la Liga and in the Champions League where his record reaches up to that goal per game level. This is where we can expect to see more price boosts but what type of offers will we see now that he has moved to Italy?
A typical deal from a bookmaker may lift the price on Cristiano to score anytime during a match. This may come as a single bet or alternatively it may be listed as a double with Juventus to win the game as well. The promo may be listed for the Italian Cups, or possibly in the league where Juve’s great rivals are Inter and AC Milan but more commonly, these enhanced Ronaldo promotions will come in the Champions League which gets greater exposure across Europe.
We will aim to bring you the best of these price boosts as they drop in so keep reading for the best enhanced offers deals on Cristiano Ronaldo – one of the world’s greatest players.
