Christiano Ronaldo becomes the first player to score 50 Premier League, La Liga and Seria A goals.
Christiano Ronaldo breaks another record with his brace against Lazio, becoming the first player to score 50 Premier League, La Liga and Seria A goals. His second-half penalty against Lazio also saw him become the fastest player to reach a half-century of finishes for 25 years.
The Portuguese’s second-half penalty finish against Lazio saw him clock up a half-century of goals in the Italian top-flight since his arrival in Turin, in addition becoming the fastest player to do so since 1995.
However, his converted spot-kick means that he has also equaled Giuseppe Signori’s 1994-95 record for penalty goals in a season, with 12 successful conversions from inside the area.
Chritiano Ronaldo joined Juventus ahead of the 2018-19 campaign from Real Madrid, where he practically won virtually every major domestic honour and four Champions League titles and 4 Ballon d’Or.
Nevertheless, he spent six years at Manchester United, where he initially forged his reputation as one of the world’s greatest players with a maiden Ballon d’Or win in 2008 following the Red Devils’ own European triumphs.
He registered an impressive number of goals, with 118 in 292 appearances for United and 450 in 438 games for Madrid – and with his latest haul for the Bianconeri, he has shown that his prowess remains impressively intact even at 35 years of age.
More still, at international level, Ronaldo lies one finish short of a century outright, with 99 goals for Portugal across all competitions, with only Iran’s Ali Daei having exceeded his prolific total on the global stage.
