While there are plenty of new and unusual features that have come with sports restarting amid a global pandemic, there are just as many things that have remained the same from before this moment in time. Case in point: Cristiano Ronaldo is still scoring absolutely golazos.

In the 56th minute during Juventus’ match against Genoa on Tuesday, Ronaldo got the ball while sprinting down the middle of the pitch. Thanks to some haphazard defending from those in front of him, the Portuguese superstar had enough space to pull back his right leg and absolutely blast a shot into the top corner of the net and double his team’s lead. The shot’s power, Ronaldo’s pace and highlight-worthy distance of the shot were all classic Ronaldo.

It seemed that the good form was contagious among his fellow Juventus squad members. About 17 minutes after that cracker of a shot, Brazilian winger Douglas Costa had a golazo of his own. He took the ball from the outside corner of the penalty box, and curled in a shot that must have been beautiful beyond belief as Genoa’s keeper did absolutely nothing to try and stop it.

Juventus’ victory puts the team four points ahead of Lazio in the Serie A table with nine games left in the season.
