The Portuguese icon is on red-hot form and could add more stars to his illustrious CV if he finds the back of the net at San Siro on Sunday.
Cristiano Ronaldo is synonymous with records. Making a new record or breaking an old one is often a highlight of a player’s career, but the Portugal captain does it week in week out.
Just in his previous start, he became the first player to net at least 15 goals in each of the last 15 seasons in Europe’s top five leagues by scoring late in the 3-1 Serie A victory against Sassuolo.
CR7 is now chasing a couple more records in the crunch clash between Juventus and Inter Milan on Sunday evening.
The former Real Madrid and Manchester United forward will become the first player to score 20 goals in 15 consecutive seasons should he find the back of the net against Inter.
Scoring 15 in Serie A and four in the Champions League, he has already scored 19 goals in just 18 games so far in 2020-21.
With a goal at San Siro on Sunday, he will also become officially the highest scorer of all time in football.
Ronaldo is currently on 759 career goals, tied with Austrian-Czech striker Josef Bican who was active between 1931 and 1955.
