Ronaldo becomes first Juventus player in 60 years to score 25 league goals

Cristiano Ronaldo has broken yet another record in his already impressive career. The 35-year-old netted a free kick on Saturday as Juventus beat Turin 4-1. Ronaldo scored one  goal, meaning he has now scored his 25th league goal of the season. That goal has made him the first Juventus player in 60 years to reach that mark.

While Ronaldo is still trying to become the league top goalscorer this season, he remains four efforts short of Lazio striker Ciro Immobile. In his first season at Juventus, Ronaldo scored 21 league goals, helping them win their seventh consecutive Serie A title. His tally of 21 has been improved this season and with 8 games to go it appears he could be scoring even more.

He has now matched the efforts of club legend Omar Sivori from 1960-61, who was the last Juventus player to score 25 league goals in a single season. And while Juventus has had legendary players in their team like Alessandro Del Piero, Roberto Baggio and Michel Platini, none of them ever managed to match Sivori’s scoring record.
