Cagliari forward Joao Pedro proud beating Ronaldo in goalscoring stakes

“The Italian league is very difficult. It's a very tactical championship.

Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the greatest in history. I Spain he always scored 40 goals, whilst in Italy he got 25," he added. “This is because it's very difficult to play against the Italian defenders."
