Cristiano Ronaldo continues to set the benchmark in 2020, with the Juventus star topping the goalscoring charts for this year.

Nothing seems capable of putting the brakes on Cristiano Ronaldo as he leads Juventus’ charge for domestic and European honours this season.

The Portuguese star’s sensational form has seen him score 30 goals in as many games in the Italian league, one which he rates as the most difficult one for all forwards in European football.

A fifth European Golden Shoe, second Serie A title and a first Capocannoniere award are all up for grabs.

Such is CR7’s goalscoring ability that he became the only player in history to reach the 50-goal mark in the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A after bagging both goals in Juventus’ 2-1 win over title rivals Lazio.

But that brace on Monday night not only enabled Ronaldo to write more history, but GiveMeSport has revealed that it saw him surpass Robert Lewandowski as the top-scorer of 2020.

And to think this guy is 35 years old!
