Cristiano Ronaldo Makes History In Europe With Genoa Win

Cristiano Ronaldo makes history yet again in Europe after the talisman helped his Juventus side pick up all three points on Sunday. The 35-year-old forward became the first player to reach 400 wins in Europe’s top five leagues in the 21st century after guiding Juventus past Genoa.

The Portuguese was on the scoresheet as he grabbed a brace with both goals coming from the sport in the last 12 minutes of the game to help his side see out a 3-1 victory in their most recent Serie A fixture.

In the 78th minute, the Bianconeri was handed a penalty following a challenge on Juan Cuadrado inside the box. The second penalty came 11 minutes later when Alvaro Morata was brought down by the visitor’s goalkeeper. Ronaldo stepped out to convert both penalties flawlessly.

On the other hand, Cristiano Ronaldo also made his 100th appearance for the Italian giants Juventus on the night, where he capped it off with a brace.

This season so far, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has hit 14 goals in just 11 games across all competitions, with 10 of those goals coming in Serie A.
