Jakarta, CNN Indonesia —
Cristiano Ronaldo will again be in the spotlight when Portugal are hosted by Luxembourg in the Euro 2024 Group J qualifying match at the Luxembourg Stadium, Monday (27/3) early morning Western Indonesian Time.
Ronaldo became the star of Portugal’s victory in their last match. The Al Nassr star scored two goals in helping the Selecao das Quinas win 4-0 over weak team Liechtenstein last Thursday (23/3).
Ronaldo scored the first goal against Liechtenstein with a penalty kick. Meanwhile, the next goal came from a free kick.
The score of the two goals seemed to confirm that Ronaldo had not run out. CR7, Ronaldo’s nickname, shows that he can transfer his sharpness with Al Nassr to the national team.
Now Ronaldo and his friends will meet Luxembourg. On paper, Roberto Martinez’s team are clear favorites to win even though they are playing at the opponent’s base.
The opportunity to bring home positive results is also supported by Ronaldo’s good report card against Luxembourg. At the last meeting of the two teams in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, Ronaldo managed to score a hat trick.
Ronaldo has also always scored goals in the last four meetings against The Red Lions, nicknamed Luxembourg. At least one goal was netted by the collector of five Ballon d’Or titles.
In the last four meetings between Luxembourg and Portugal, Ronaldo scored six goals. The productivity of goals shows that Ronaldo will still be the main threat in the match later.
