From equaling Josef Bican’s record to set a new one, Cristiano Ronaldo has further made headlines after an impressive weekend that has equally seen Juventus add a vital three points on Sunday. Ronaldo sets a new record with his goal against Sassuolo on Sunday for becoming the first player in football history to score at least 15 goals in each of the last 15 seasons in a top-five European league, after reaching or passing the mark since the 2006/07 season.
The Portuguese ensured that his contributions count on Sunday by scoring a 92nd-minute goal to seal a 3-1 win for the Bianconeri over Sassuolo. With the victory, the defending champions are now seven points behind the league leaders AC Milan and with a game to play.
Other scorers for the night were Danilo and Aaron Ramsey, who replaced an injured Weston McKennie early in the match. While Gregoire Defrel scored for the 10-man host when Juve was 1-0 up.
Despite Ronaldo didn’t have the best of his game after missing several chances to be on the scoresheet, it only took him one magic moment to turn things around in his favor. The 35-year-old forward latched on to Danilo’s long-range pass with a superb first touch and then outran his markers before slotting the ball into the bottom right corner of the goal.
The effort secured victory for the Old Lady as Cristiano Ronaldo sets a new record in football history.
Up next for Ronaldo and Juventus is a Coppa Italia showdown with Genoa on Wednesday. Congratulations to Cristiano for his newest record!
