Cristiano Ronaldo is already making his mark at Juventus after equalling a 60-year-old goalscoring club record

The Portuguese striker may have had to wait until his fourth Serie A game against Sassuolo to find the net for Juventus, but the goals have since flowed in.

Since that match-winning brace on September 16, Ronaldo has directly contributed towards eight goals for Juventus by either scoring them or assisting a teammate.

Now AS reports that Ronaldo’s current goal tally of seven goals in his first 10 Serie A games has equalled John Charles’ 60-year-old record.

The former Welsh forward, who played for Juventus between 1957 to 1962, managed seven goals in his first 10 league fixtures for the Old Lady.

Moise Kean scores his first goal for the Azzurri

Moise Kean started his first game for the Italian national team, scoring in the 2-0 victory over Finland.

Charles finished his debut campaign at Turin with 28 goals for the 1957/58 season and won the Serie A title.

Argentine strike duo Gonzalo Higuain and Carlos Tevez both struck six times in their opening 10 league games along with Italian Filippo Inzaghi.

While Alessandro Del Piero, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and David Trezeguet both struck five times in 10 appearances.

Now Ronaldo will undoubtedly have his eyes set on Genoa striker Krzysztof Piatek, who leads the Serie A scoring charts with nine goals.

Juventus will host Cagliari on Saturday in their next league game with kick-off to begin at 20:30 (CEST).
