The Portuguese is always the difference maker and he showed that yet again on Saturday by scoring both goals to wrap up a 2-0 win over Cagliari.

Cristiano Ronaldo Broke 3 New Records In 2-0 Win Over Cagliari
Ronaldo’s goals meant more as they were enough to get the 35-year-old forward’s name in the history book. Below are the three milestones Cristiano Ronaldo reached with his goals against the visiting team on Saturday night.
1. Ronaldo Beats Ferenc Puskas’ Ranking In The All-Time Highest Goalscoring List
After he moved joint 4th on 746 career goals with Ferenc Puskas against Andorra during the international break, Ronaldo’s brace means he has pulled clear from his fellow Real Madrid legend in the all-time goalscoring charts.
Cristiano is now in fourth-place on 748 career goals behind Pele (767 goals), Romario (772 goals), and Josef Bican (805 goals). This means that only 57 goals stand between Ronaldo and Bican in the charts. And when you think of Ronaldo’s ruthlessness inside the box, it would only be a question of time until he becomes the highest goalscorer in history.

2. First Juventus Player To Score In His First 5 Serie A Games Of The Season
It is almost certain that you should be expecting a new record each day Ronaldo takes to the field, and he becomes more difficult to stop with age.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s brace won the Bianconeri all three points. It made him the first Juventus player to score in all his opening five Serie A games of a new season since the three-points-per-win era began in 1994/95, according to OptaPaolo.
3. A New Time Record Of 60 Serie A Goals
The Portuguese ace has now scored a new record 60 goals in his 69 Serie A appearances. Nobody in the Italian league’s history has scored so many goals in such a short number of games. Considering that Ronaldo Nazario and Alessandro Del Piero have graced Serie A, this record means a great deal of achievement for the Real Madrid legend.
Cristiano Ronaldo also now has eight Serie A goals this season and has kept a close track with Serie A goals chart leader Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Previously, Cristiano Ronaldo has won the Premier League and La Liga Golden Boot awards and will be determined to land the Capocannoniere this season.
