When you talk about records in football, hardly will the name Cristiano Ronaldo not come to your mind.

The former Sporting Lisbon, Manchester United, and Real Madrid superstar has been shattering records for most of his career as he has also been setting new ones.

The Juventus forward missed a few games for his side this season as a result of being diagnosed with contracting the corona virus. However, since his return, he has resumed doing what he knows just how to do best - scoring goals.
Juventus faced Cagliari in the Serie A on Saturday, winning the game 2-0 with the help of Cristiano Ronaldo's brace.
Ronaldo was rather quiet during the international break with his Portugal team, scoring just one goal in three fixtures for his national team side. But he yet again showed that even after clocking 35, he is still at the top level.
He scored the first goal in the 38th minute at the Juve thus stadium in Turin, which stretched the number of consecutive goalscoring streak to five games. Just four minutes later, he found the back of the net a second time and made it eight League goals from just four starts this season.
The Portugal captain almost created an assist on two occasions, but the lack of clinical finishing ability of his teammates meant that he would end up without any assist.
Ronaldo's two goals mean he now has 748 career goals, surpassing Ferenc Puskas's tally of 746. He however has to score three more goals to surpass Romario's 750 and climb up to second place. To surpass Brazilian legend Pele and become the all-time scorer in football history, he will need to score 20 more goals - a feat that is very much achievable especially if his impressive form continues.
