In what was his 600th championship game, Cristiano Ronaldo scored again, reaching yet another milestone in football history.
Juventus beat Spezia 3-0, with the Portuguese international scoring on 89 minutes. In a quick counterattack by Juve, Ronaldo managed to shoot with count, weight and measure at the entrance of the area, beating the opposing goalkeeper and closing the scorer of the match.
With this goal, Cristiano Ronaldo reached 20 goals in Serie A this season and wrote another page in his long record book. The striker became the first player to score at least 20 goals over 12 consecutive seasons in more than one of the major European leagues.
Until now, Lionel Messi takes 19 goals in La Liga, being just one goal from reaching the 20 goal mark for the 13th consecutive season with Barcelona.
The 20 goals in 21 games make Cristiano Ronaldo the best scorer in the Italian League. Romelu Lukaku of Inter comes next with two fewer goals.
With the victory of Juventus in this last game, the team remains in the race for the title, in the third place of the league table. The ‘vecchia signora’ has seven points less than the leader Inter. Juve coach Andrea Pirlo highlighted the team’s full schedule.
“We didn’t have a brilliant start, which is normal when playing every three days”, said the Italian coach. “We tried to manage the game and we also created some opportunities in the first half. In the second half, thanks to some new faces, we were able to be more threatening and change the confrontation, with the wings and midfielders making good inroads into the area ”.
