Zlatan’s record for scoring against the most clubs in a top 5 European league since 2000 is in Ronaldo’s sights.
Cristiano Ronaldo is close to Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s record for scoring against 79 different clubs in a top 5 European league since 2000.
Two first-half goals in Monday’s 3-0 win over Crotone means Ronaldo has scored against every club currently in Serie A. Only Chievo Verona, who were relegated to Serie B in 2018/19, have kept the forward goalless in the Italian top-flight.
Ronaldo has now scored against 78 different clubs in a European league. He only needs to score against one more new team to equal Zlatan’s record.

Considering Ronaldo has already scored against every club currently in Serie A, however, he’ll have to wait until next season at the earliest to equal Zlatan’s landmark.
