Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 759th goal for club and country on Sunday, drawing level with Josef Bican for most official goals in football history.
Juventus extended their winning streak in Serie A to three games following a 3-1 victory over Sassuolo on Sunday. Danilo opened the scoring for the Bianconeri in the 50th minute after Sassuolo were reduced to ten men just before the interval, but the visitors drew level eight minutes later. Aaron Ramsey restored the lead for the hosts in the 82nd minute before Cristiano Ronaldo settled the game in injury time. It was Ronaldo’s 22nd goal for Juventus in all competitions this season as Juventus moved back to fourth place on the Serie A table.
As Ronaldo sealed a victory for the Old Lady on Sunday, the Portuguese star netted his 759th goal for both club and country – a record now only matched by Bican, the Austrian-Czech striker who played between 1931 and 1955. The two-time Serie A champion edged past Brazilian legend Pele’s record of 757 official goals last week after netting a brace against Udinese.
