EXTRAORDINARY goal stat proves how much Juve and Barca miss Ronaldo and Messi

Posted by

A quite amazing stat puts into perspective just how worse off Juventus and Barcelona are having lost Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

We never thought we’d see two of the greatest footballers ever to have lived embark on new challenges in the same transfer window, but Ronaldo and Messi treated us over the summer by signing for Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain respectively.

While their arrivals in Manchester and Paris were MAJOR boosts for their new employers, both Juventus and Barcelona have been left to pick up the pieces in their absence and, unsurprisingly, have both endured difficult seasons so far as they adapt to life without the superstars.

A stat shared by @Sport360 provides a little more perspective on the importance of both players to their former sides in terms of finding the back of the net and confirms that neither Juve or Barca have had any sort of luck when it comes to replacing their influence.

Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised, such is the extraordinary goal-scoring output of these two phenoms, but it’s impressive nonetheless, with both players not having played a league game for their former clubs since MAY!
