Cristiano Ronaldo picked up right where he left off at the Camp Nou on Tuesday, December 9, 2020, as he terrorized Barcelona once again at their home stadium.

Ronaldo made his long-awaited return to the stadium on Tuesday as he faced Barcelona for the first time since leaving Real Madrid in 2018.

During his time in La Liga, Ronaldo proved to be one of Barcelona’s all-time great rivals as Real Madrid frequently did battle with Lionel Messi’s Barcelona.

That historic rivalry moved into another chapter when Ronaldo opted to head to Juventus, but the Portuguese star showed just how little has changed with a vintage performance on Tuesday.

Ronaldo fired two goals in what ended as a lopsided 3-0 Juventus win as he was joined by Weston McKennie on the scoresheet.

The former Real Madrid star’s first came in the 13th minute came via a penalty while his second, which was scored in the 52nd minute, was also fired from the spot.

With the goals, Ronaldo has scored 14 goals at the Camp Nou in all competitions, more than at any other away stadium in his club career – while the double also put him past the 650 mark overall.

Additionally, Ronaldo became the first player in the history of the Champions League to convert twice from the spot at Barcelona’s home ground.

In terms of their Champions League standing, Tuesday’s loss harmed Barcelona, who finished second in the group with Juventus finishing top.

Juventus also became the first Italian side ever to score at least three goals at the Camp Nou in UEFA competition.
