With a brace against Fiorentina on 2/2, the Portuguese striker became the second fastest player in history to reach the 50-goal milestone in Italy.
Since moving to Juventus in the summer of 2018, Cristiano Ronaldo has maintained a high level of form and contributed greatly to the achievement. In the first season, CR7 scored 28 goals and helped the team win a double domestic title.
Ronaldo is even better this season, having scored 22 goals and is likely to cross the 30 mark at the end of the season. The double on the 11m mark against Fiorentina on February 2 helped him to raise the total goals scored while playing in Italy to 50.
According to Daily Mail statistics, the former Real Madrid striker lost 70 matches to reach this milestone. It is the second fastest review in history.
The only person who does better than Ronaldo is Andriy Shevchenko, a former AC Milan player. The Ukrainian striker lost 69 games to score 50 goals. He reached this milestone with a double against AS Roma in the match on January 21, 2001.
The achievements of CR7 even surpass that of Ronaldo. He lost 77 matches to score 50 goals in Italy, 7 more than Ronaldo. In addition, the other names on this list are famous players such as Marco van Basten, Michel Platini, Gabriel Batistuta, David Trezeguet.
However, they are all in the pursuit of under 30 when reaching the 50-goal milestone in Italy. While Ronaldo just turned 35 a few days ago. That shows the toughness and ability to play the top notch despite the age of the Portuguese superstar.
CR7 once shared that he wants to play top football in his 40th birthday. This is probably not an unrealistic desire because Ronaldo is famous as one of the players with strict diet and training. Besides, another colleague Zlatan Ibrahimovic is also playing well at AC Milan at the age of 38.
