Cristiano Ronaldo Proves He's Mentally Bulletproof After Fiorentina Goalkeeper Tried To Play Mind Games

Cristiano Ronaldo Proves He's Mentally Bulletproof After Fiorentina Goalkeeper Tried To Play Mind Games

Cristiano Ronaldo scored two emphatic penalties against Fiorentina goalkeeper Bartlomiej Dragowski who hilariously claimed he knew where the Juventus forward shoots.

Ronaldo successfully converted two spot kicks during Juventus' stunning 3-0 victory over Fiorentina on Sunday.

And his brace tasted even sweeter after Dragowski tried to play mind games ahead of their Serie A clash.

The Polish stopper assured fans by saying he's studied Ronaldo and knows how he shoots.

"I studied Cristiano Ronaldo, I know how he shoots," he told Corriere dello Sport before Sunday's meeting. "I'm not going to tell you how I predict he'll take penalties, or could read this and change it. I'd rather there weren't any penalties in the game, to be honest."

Dragowski had the chance to back up his claim but he failed miserably as Ronaldo slotted not one but two penalties past him.

Ronaldo fired home his first penalty in the 40th minute as Dragowski dived the right way.

Dragowski was then given another chance to deny Ronaldo from the spot. But, again, he failed to save the Portugal forward's penalty as the 34-year-old sent him the wrong to bag his 19th league goal of the season.

Ronaldo's two goal haul brought up his 50th goal for the club and he has now scored in his ninth straight Serie A game.

He's, though, still four goals behind leading scorer Ciro Immobile who has scored 23 league goals for Lazio this campaign.
