Cristiano Ronaldo breaks records in Italy

The Juventus' striker is unstoppable

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Cristiano Ronaldo displayed a record setting performance against Lazio on Monday.

Cristiano Ronaldo sets records wherever he goes:

The 35 year old, Portuguese International breaks records, as it seems- for fun. He scored a brace to give the Old Lady 2-1 victory at the Allianz Stadium.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner scored the opening goal in the 51st minute from the penalty spot after the VAR check and netted his second of the night moments later. Paulo Dybala should be given fair amount of credit for assisting the second goal. But, Ronaldo also well positioned himself to score the second one.

Ciro Immobile pulled back a goal for Lazio in the 83rd minute but it proved to be a consolation goal for the visitors.

Ronaldo now has 12 successful conversions from the penalty area.

Cristiano Ronaldo joined Juventus in 2018-19 after the successful run at Real Madrid and achieving all the possible honours.

The Juventus striker has broken different records during this match.

Cristiano has reached an incredible feat of 734 goals to his name, now moved to the second place in the most number of goals ever scored, alongside Romario, behind Pele with the tally of 767 goals.
