Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 23 goals in 36 games in the 2021/22 season, good numbers, but still below the average he has recorded throughout his career.
In a season full of ups and downs, the Man Utd could be even worse if it weren’t for their star player, Cristiano Ronaldo. removed from the Champions League (in the round of 16 for the Atletico Madrid) and in a practically irreversible situation in the fight for fourth place in the premier leaguethe Red Devils have been saved by the decisive goals from the Portuguese who have avoided a major crisis for the team OldTrafford.
Until now, CR7 he has scored 23 goals in 36 games in the 2021/22 season, good numbers, but still below the average he has recorded throughout his career. The sum makes him the top scorer of his team, with a wide advantage over Bruno Fernandes, who has 9 goals in 43 games.
In the Champions League, for example, if it weren’t for Ronaldo, United probably wouldn’t have even advanced to the round of 16 of the competition and would have lost their place to Atalanta, who were third in Group F.
In European competition, the Manchester team finished at the top of their group, with 11 points, thanks to three wins, two draws and one loss. He recorded 11 goals scored and eight conceded.
Ronaldo was directly decisive in two victories, when he scored the decisive goals against Villarreal Y Atalanta, in Old Trafford, and also in the draw against the Italian squad, in which he scored both goals in the match that ended tied at two. That is, Ronaldo “won” 5 points.
In the premier league, the United currently occupies sixth place in the table, with 55 points, five less than the Arsenalwhich closes the Top 4 and, consequently, the qualifying zone for the Champions League. The problem, however, is that the Gunners have two games in hand to the Red Devils, making their quest to secure a place in the next Champions League even more difficult. Without CR7, the situation would be even worse.
Scorer of 17 goals in 28 games in the competition so far, Cristiano Ronaldo has had a direct influence on nine results of the United on the premier league so far, whether it’s scoring the winning goals, saving the team from a stumble or, more importantly, paving the way for the wins. Next, the contribution of El ‘Bicho’.
Manchester United 4- 1 Newcastle – scored the first 2 goals
West Ham 1- 2 Manchester United – scored the equalizer
Tottenham 0-3 Manchester United – scored the first goal
Manchester United 3-2 Arsenal – scored the last 2 goals
Norwich 0-1 Manchester United – scored the winning goal
Manchester United 2-0 Brighton – scored the first goal
Manchester United 3-2 Tottenham – scored all 3 goals
Manchester United 3-2 Norwich – scored all 3 goals
Manchester United 1-1 Chelsea – scored the equalizer
That is, without the goals of Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United he would not have added 16 points in the competition, remaining with 39 units and occupying position 14, just 10 from the relegation zone. Of course, another striker could help, but certainly not like the Portuguese star.
