Ronaldo Equal Seria A Goal Scoring Record
Portuguese skipper and Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has marked his 1,000th senior game in style.
The former Manchester and Real Madrid forward has secured a record-equalling 11th consecutive Serie A goal.
That’s what Cristiano did – the Juventus forward responding in style to news of Lionel Messi’s four-goal haul for Barcelona earlier in the day.
Ronaldo, 35, met Juan Cuadrado’s cross to equal the Italian top-flight record, shared with Gabriel Batistuta and Fabio Quagliarella.
Aaron Ramsey added a second for the Serie A leaders in a 2-1 win over SPAL.
Portugal international Cristiano, who also struck the crossbar with a free-kick in the closing stages, has scored 16 times during his record-equalling 11-game run in the league.
With 36 goals in 36 games for club and country this season, the Juve forward will have the opportunity to break the Serie A record goalscoring streak against Inter Milan on Sunday 1 March.
