The Portuguese superstar single-handedly inspired his side to a late comeback win last weekend, scripting a record in the process.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice within six minutes as Juventus sealed a 2-1 victory against Udinese to move to third place in the Serie A standings.

Ronaldo established a healthy lead over his nearest competitor Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Capocannoniere with his brace, taking his goal tally to 27 in 30 league matches.

Furthermore, the forward’s double saw him become the leading scorer of match-winning goals of all time in Europe’s top five leagues.

The former Real Madrid, Manchester United, and Sporting man has scored 146 match-winning goals in his career so far.

While Ronaldo has been in red-hot goalscoring form this season, he was unable to help his side in their title defense this season.

Inter Milan were crowned the 2020/21 Serie A champions, putting an end to Juventus nine-year dominance.
