Cristiano Ronaldo has already set a record at Juventus, not matched for 60 years

Eyebrows were raised when Cristiano Ronaldo opted to leave Real Madrid for Juventus in the summer.

Serie A is renowned as being a more defensive league than La Liga, and many football fans assumed Ronaldo would struggle to score goals at such a prolific rate.

The Portuguese superstar made scoring goals look easy during his time in Spain. In 438 appearances for Los Blancos, Ronaldo netted a remarkable 450 goals.

That works out as 50 goals a season on average. No wonder Madrid have struggled without the five-time Ballon d’Or winner this season.

Madrid’s loss has undoubtedly been Juve’s gain. Although Ronaldo endured a difficult start to life with the Italian giants, he’s making up for lost time now.

In his last nine appearances, Ronaldo has scored seven goals. All seven goals have been scored in Serie A, making a mockery of suggestions that he would struggle to find the back of the net quite so regularly in Italy’s top division.

Spanish newspaper AS have now revealed that Ronaldo has set a Juventus record which hasn’t been matched for 60 years.

It’s been revealed that no Juve player has scored more than six goals in their first 10 Serie A games since the legendary John Charles during the 1957-58 campaign.
