Konami informed RealSport what will be the rating of Cristiano Ronaldo on PES 2020. The Portuguese player, 34 years old, is going to be rated on the field at 94 – making him one of the best players in PES 2020.
Although there is not yet a comprehensive breakdown of his statistics (we'll have to wait for the demo), a fast look at PESMaster – a website devoted to PES scores – can offer us an indication of what to expect.
The striker has a pace rating of 89–a couple of points below his FIFA rating. It doesn't sound like a lot, but in the match it will make all the difference.
His general score is also subject to question marks.
Although Ronaldo has turned into a number 9, since moving to Juventus, Portugal's captain has scored fewer objectives.
His 28 objectives in all last season's contest are his smallest return since he left Manchester United for Real Madrid back in 2009. Yet this trend has been buckled by his PES rating over the previous few years – effectively increasing rather than decreasing.
But one thing is certain. Another player with an amazing 94 score will match him all the way through by Lionel Messi.
We disclosed earlier this week that FIFA 20 will not feature for the first time in 25 years Juventus or the team's stadium–as Konami picked up exclusive rights for PES 2020.
However, the Juventus agreement is – and how EA Sports will react to this in FIFA 20 remains to be seen. The Allianz Stadium is not going to be included in the game – and will probably be substituted by an EA stadium inventory – much like the Nou Camp in Barcelona over the years.
Also, Bayern Munich has signed an agreement with PES, and while this is not exclusive, Bayern's Allianz Arena will not appear in FIFA 20.
Cristiano Ronaldo, the cover star of FIFA 19, is also making the move, appearing at the front of the PES 2020 Juventus club edition.
Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic joins Barca's Lionel Messi, Manchester United Starlet Scott McTominay and Bayern Munich season player Serge Gnabry as the cover stars for the Konami title that won the E3 Best Sports Game Critics Choice Award.
EA Sports were quick to make an announcement saying the Juventus team will appear on FIFA 20, but under a different guise.
The club will instead be called Piemonte Calcio, and will have a created crest and kit as well as a made up stadium.
The good news is that all the player names and likenesses will remain, so you still be able to play with their players, just not under the Juventus banner. Ironically, this is what PES has done in the past with clubs they didn’t have the licences for.
