With the Serie A title already in the bag, Juventus grabbed another point against Inter thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo’s 600th career-goal at club level.
The Portuguese forward’s intention was to reach this number of goals at club level on the same day he made history with Juventus.
Ronaldo became the only player in football history who has won the league titles in England, Spain, and Italy.
But reaching this magic number was just as important to him because there are very few players in football history who have reached this incredible milestone.
Just to put things in perspective, only a handful of players have managed to reach this number in football history.
We are fortunate enough to have two of them playing in their prime right now, Ronaldo always facing off against Lionel Messi and us never knowing who is the better player.
We will never reach a final decision on this debate and both men will have dinner sometime when they are old.
At this dinner, both of them will mock all the people who always compared them instead of enjoying their existence while they are having a glass of wine.
Reminiscing about their past is something that both Messi and Ronaldo must do when they retire.
Somebody should also start planning a documentary of them together, one that details all the years in which they gave us what we wanted.
¡Apareció Cristiano Ronaldo! 😎

The day finally came against Inter
After celebrating the title last weekend, Cristiano Ronaldo’s next objective is to finish the season as the Serie A top scorer and reach this 600th goal.
Today was an ideal moment for him to possibly get this goal against a competitive rival such as Internazionale Milano, Juventus visited the Giuseppe Meazza with Ronaldo in the starting XI.
The match didn’t start well for the Old Lady, Radja Nainggolan scored one of the most beautiful volleys of the season during the first half for Inter.
Ronaldo had to wait until the second half in order to search for that milestone, which he eventually reached.
Past the 15-minute mark during the second half, Ronaldo made a beautiful combination with Miralem Pjanic that left him with the chance to release a long-range attempt.
Cristiano’s shot reached the back of the net through the bottom corner and this gave Juventus the final result against Inter.
With this new draw, the Old Lady reaches 88 Serie A points and gets a chance to win another 9 units before the end of the season.
Cristiano Ronaldo will have another three opportunities to score more goals and reach the top of the goal-scoring table.
The Portuguese forward reached 19 goals in Serie A this season, he is only 3 away from AC Milan’s Krzysztof Piątek.

The final road ahead for Juventus
Ronaldo will most likely play Juventus’ last three matches of the season if he feels fit to do so, he wants that Cappocanioniere title for himself.
The next target on his mind will come in the form of a Turin Derby against Torino next weekend.
This will be the second one he plays for Juventus after scoring the winner back in December from the spot at Stadio Grande Torino.
The next rival after that will be AS Roma at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Cristiano Ronaldo still hasn’t scored a goal against the Roman squad and he will be eager to do so.
And last but not least, Ronaldo will have to play against Duvan Zapata’s Atalanta on the last Serie A fixture of the season.
The Colombian striker has two more goals than Cristiano so far and both of them will compete against each other for supremacy.
If Ronaldo wants to have a shot at winning the goal-scoring title, he needs to at least score three more goals in the next two matches before playing the last match of the season.
The Portuguese forward enters a new chapter of his career today, one that will challenge him to reach 700 club goals before he decides to hang up his boots.
We can at least tell you that Ronaldo will perform at the highest level for a few more years before this happens.
600 club career goals 👏
