Double scorer against Atalanta (2-2), Saturday in Serie A, Cristiano Ronaldo has been a little more careful with his beautiful statistics since the start of the season. The Juventus striker could also break two unidentified records if he continues on his spear.
Ronaldo is on fire with Juventus.
Top scorer in the history of Real Madrid (450), top scorer in the history of the Champions League (120), top scorer in the history of the Portuguese national team (99), co-top scorer in the history of the Euro with Michel Platini (9) … Cristiano Ronaldo passes and the records break. At 35 and still with all his teeth, the Juventus striker has some other all-time performances to go after.
4 goals from an all-time record with Juventus
Even more after his new double against Atalanta (2-2), Saturday, during the 32nd day of Serie A. With now 28 achievements in as many outings, the superstar of Juventus has already done better than all his predecessors with the Old Lady … in the past 60 years. Forget the David Trezeguet, Alessandro Del Piero or other Filippo Inzaghi, or even Michel Platini, Roberto Baggio or Paolo Rossi. With this impressive total, Ronaldo became the first Bianconero to reach the 25 league goal mark in the past six decades, thus matching Omar Sivori’s performance in 1960-1961.
Six days before the end and on his own spear, since CR7 has scored 23 goals in its last 17 Serie A games, with only one match without finding the fault, against Inter Milan (2-0), before the cut, hard to think that it will not improve this figure. How many more achievements? To get into Juventus history books once and for all, Ronaldo only needs 4 small pawns. With 32 goals, he would exceed the best total held by a Juventino, namely Flice Borel, author of 31 goals in the 1933-1934 season. Another time, another football.
First player to finish top scorer in 3 of the 5 big leagues?
When it seemed difficult to catch him, Ronaldo returned a small goal from Ciro Immobile, who has only found the back of the net 2 times in 5 games since returning to the field. If he continues on his hectic pace since the beginning of the year 2020, the European champion 2016 could burn the politeness of his Lazio counterpart, much less effective. If Gonzalo Higuain’s absolute record (36 with Naples in 2015-2016) will be complicated to seek, but not impossible, Ronaldo could be the first player in history to finish top scorer in 3 of the 5 major European championships, after the Premier League (31 in 2007-2008) and La Liga (40 in 2010-2011, 31 in 2013-2014, 48 in 2014-2015).
For the moment, only 7 players have managed to achieve an equal performance over the last 30 years: Christian Vieri in Liga (24 in 1997-1998) and in Serie A (24 in 2002-2003), Ruud van Nistelrooy in Premier League ( 25 in 2002-2003) and in La Liga (25 in 2006-2007), Luca Toni in Serie A (31 in 2005-2006) and in the Bundesliga (24 in 2007-2008), Zlatan Ibrahimovic in Serie A (25 in 2008- 2009, 28 in 2011-2012) and in Ligue 1 (30 in 2012-2013, 26 in 2013-2014, 38 in 2015-2016), Edin Dzeko in the Bundesliga (22 in 2009-2010) and in Serie A (29 in 2016-2017), Luis Suarez in the Premier League (31 in 2013-2014) and in La Liga (40 in 2015-2016) as well as Edinson Cavani in Serie A (29 in 2012-2013) and in Ligue 1 (35 in 2016 -2017, 28 in 2017-2018). This shows the feat that Ronaldo could soon offer himself.
