ROME (Reuters) - Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo set another scoring record as he became the first player to net at least 15 goals in each of the last 15 seasons in Europe’s top five leagues.
The 35-year-old Portuguese fired a low diagonal shot into the bottom corner to seal a 3-1 win for his side against Sassuolo in stoppage time.
It took his tally to 15 goals in 13 Serie A appearances this season, a goal landmark he has reached every year since the 2006-07 campaign, during spells with Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juve.
The record applies to the top five leagues in the UEFA country coefficient: Spain’s La Liga, England’s Premier League, Italy’s Serie A, Germany’s Bundesliga and France’s Ligue 1.
