Cristiano Ronaldo Combines His ‘Sí’ Celebration With Paulo Dybala's 'Dybalamask' After Scoring
| Last updated
Cristiano Ronaldo showed off a new celebration after he scored for Juventus against Sassuolo.
The 34-year-old Portuguese footballer is known for his trademark 'Sí!' celebration, so it's unsurprising that it made up the first part of his celebration.
However, he added a nice twist to it after he took a page out of Paulo Dybala's book by using the 'Dybalamask' celebration.
That's right, it is the best of both worlds for this one.
Ronaldo, who was recently dropped from the new cover for FIFA 19, has used the sí -- it means 'yes' in Spanish, by the way -- celebration since his days at Real Madrid, along with when he famously yelled it after he won the Ballon d'Or in 2015.
"The scream? The players know I always do that shout when I score a goal or when we win," he told Cuatro.
"It's our team shout, from Real Madrid."
When it comes to the Dybalamask, the 25-year-old Argentine forward revealed the meaning behind the celebration back in 2017.
"Dybalamask is really simple: it's the mask of a gladiator!" he explained on Facebook.
"When we struggle, sometimes we must wear our warrior mask to be stronger, without losing our smile and kindness!"
Sami Khedira opened the scoring for Juventus against Sassuolo in the first half, leaving Ronaldo to double his side's lead in the second half and Emre Can to score the third of the match.
The Old Lady are at the top of Serie A and have not lost a match in the league this season.
With 20 wins and three draws in the league, Massimiliano Allegri's men are 11 points clear of second-place Napoli.
Following on from the match, the Juventus boss praised his side's mentality to bounce back after their 3-0 defeat to Atalanta in the Coppa Italia and their 3-3 draw to Parma.
"Dybala did well when he came on, so did Can and [Rodrigo] Bentancur," he told the club's website.
"To play like this, everyone needs to contribute, but we should also compliment the team for how they dealt with the game.
"We had a risk early on that [goalkeeper Wojciech] Szczęsny dealt with, but after a quarter of an hour, we started to play.
"They were struggling to cope with [Federico] Bernardeschi in the hole -- he was playing well and they couldn't read his passes. We didn't concede and we created lots of chances.
"Sassuolo's game is heavily based on their deep-lying midfielder circulating the ball. They're one of the teams with the most possession in their own half in the league."
Meanwhile, Chelsea legend John Terry recently offered his two cents when it came to answering that long-running question on Lionel Messi or Ronaldo.
How far will Juventus progress in the Champions League this season?
