Cristiano Ronaldo breaks 80-year-old Juventus record after CL double

Cristiano Ronaldo has added yet another record to his books as the Portuguese forward scored two goals for Juventus in the round of 16 of the Champions League. The Bianconeri managed to grab a 2-1 win over French side Olympique Lyon but were still knocked out of the tournament after a 1-0 loss away in France earlier this year.

Despite Juventus being knocked out of the competition, Ronaldo had something to celebrate as he managed to break a record that stood for over 80 years. His two goals for Juventus against Lyon were his 36th and 37th goal of the season and that has made him their highest all-time goalscorer over a single season.

The previous record was held by Felice Borel, who in 1933 scored 36 goals for Juventus in a single season. And the goal scoring record was not the only thing Ronaldo completed against Lyon. It also meant his third goal against the French side with three different sides (Manchester United and Real Madrid). This is a feat achieved by only two other players in the history of the Champions League: Ruud van Nistelrooy against Bayern Munich and Jorg Butt against Juventus.
