Cris­tiano Ron­aldo Sets New Record for Ju­ven­tus

The Day After - - SPORTS SNIPPETS -

Cris­tiano Ron­aldo took no time to make a mark in his new club and Serie A record cham­pi­ons Ju­ven­tus as he be­came the fastest player to score 10 goals across all com­pe­ti­tions. The Por­tuguese tal­is­man set the new record for Ju­ven­tus while mak­ing his 16th ap­pear­ance for the club on Novem­ber 24th in a league match against SPAL. Ron­aldo slot­ted home Mi­ralem Pjanic’s free-kick af­ter 29 min­utes in Turin to join Genoa’s Krzysztof Pi­atek at the top of the Serie A scor­ing charts with nine goals. Later Mario Mandzu­kic sealed the three points on the hour mark in a sim­ple warm up for Tues­day’s cru­cial Cham­pi­ons League visit of Va­len­cia.

The pair also scored both in Ju­ven­tus’ 2-0 win over AC Mi­lan be­fore the in­ter­na­tional break, and Ron­aldo’s strike was his sev­enth in eight games in all com­pe­ti­tions for his new club, for a to­tal of 10 goals this sea­son.
