If Cristiano Ronaldo can score just one more goal this season, he will be the first Juventus player in 40 years to score 25 Serie A goals in a season.

While all the talk id about Lionel Messi joining the 700-club, it should be duly noted Cristiano Ronaldo has already been in that elite group for some time.

CR7 is at 726 and counting. Unlike is Argentine nemesis though, Ronaldo’s goals led his Juventus side to victory. While Messi’s landmark goal only helped his side limp to a draw.

Juventus ran out convincing three-one winners over Genoa.

There was a brilliant individual goal from Paulo Dybala in the 50th minute.

Plus a beautiful Douglas Costa curler in the 73rd minute.

However, all the talk is of the 56th-minute banger sandwiched in between the two by one Cristiano Ronaldo.

The screamer marks his 24th in Serie A for the season. He now has nine games to reach a 40-year-old landmark. Omar Sivori is the last Juventus player to score 25 Serie A goals in a single season.

Ronaldo the record breaker keeps on rolling!
