Cristiano Ronaldo Fans All Make The Same Lionel Messi Joke After He Scores Hat-Trick For Juventus
Cristiano Ronaldo fanboys wasted no time in aiming a dig at Lionel Messi after the Juventus forward scored a hat-trick against Cagliari.
The Portuguese superstar started the new year with a bang by playing a starring role in his side's 4-0 victory over Cagliari on Monday.
He's on three goals for the year which is three more than Messi who fired blank for Barcelona against Espanyol on Saturday.
And Ronaldo fans were quick to point out that goal scoring stat as they mercilessly took to social media.
Goals this decade:
82 minutes played
Messi and the entire Barcelona squad
90 minutes played

Ronaldo dropped a hat-trick and an assist at nearly 35 years of age vs Cagliari, a team which is contending for Europe. Meanwhile, Messi drops an absolute stinker in the derby against a team which sits 20th in La Liga. pic.twitter.com/3zH3W78qGy

Ronaldo opened the scoring four minutes after the break before doubling his personal goal tally from the spot. He then completed his first Serie A hat-trick after calmly tucking away in the 82nd minute.
Juventus return to the top of the table with 45 points on the board, three points ahead of nearest rivals Inter Milan.
