Cristiano Ronaldo’s brace against Parma on Saturday night has come at the right moment for the forward after a disappointing week that saw him miss a decisive penalty against Atlanta and FIFA Best Player award.
It was a great night for the Portuguese, who with his brace took his tally to 12 goals in 9 Serie A games this season and also 33 goals in Serie A in 2020, making him only the fourth player in the history of the league to do so, sitting joint third with former Juventus player Omar Sivori.
With Ronaldo’s brace against Parma, he equally sits within two goals from becoming the world’s top goal scorer in history. The current standing says that only Pele has scored more goals than Cristiano Ronaldo in Football history with 757 goals.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo’s brace against Parma brought his tally to 756 goals and he will obviously try to get as many as he can before the end of 2020, which will see him face Fiorentina on Tuesday once more.
The brace also means Ronaldo has scored 44 goals in 2020 more than any player in Europe’s top-five leagues. It’s also a full decade now he has scored 30+ goals per season every single year!
