Juventus and Cristiano Ronaldo parted ways after three years at the end of last season but numbers show they are better off without each other.

After Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid after winning the 2018 UEFA Champions League, he made a shock move to Juventus, where he spent three seasons, scored goals, won trophies, and set new records but also endured a torrid time of criticisms.

The major point of the criticism was that he's an impediment to the team and they play better without him, and also that when he doesn't score he offers nothing else to the team, some of these and many more forced him to leave the club at the end of last season.

Now that they have parted, both parties seem to be doing fine without each other, as their performances and numbers suggest, there's not much difference in how things are turning out for them now and when Ronaldo still plays for Juventus. Ronaldo still scores goals, Juventus still wins matches though they started the season slow.

Juventus are top of their Champions League group which has champions Chelsea while Ronaldo has also helped Man Utd to the top of their group. Juventus are 7th on the Serie A table with 14 points from eight games while Manchester United are 6th on the EPL table also with 14 points from eight games too.

As the numbers suggests, Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus do not miss each other, though not much difference between them but both parties seems to be moving fine without each other.
