Ronaldo becomes only player to win 400 games in 21st century

Published Date:

Cristiano Ronaldo created history on Sunday after scoring twice for Juventus on Sunday in the Italian league Serie A. Playing against Genoa, Ronaldo scored from two spot kicks and became the only player to win 400 games in Europe’s top-five leagues this millennium. Sunday’s clash also brought up Ronaldo’s 100th game for Juventus, in which time he has netted an impressive 77 goals.

With 400 wins across Europe, no other footballer is in the vicinity of the Portuguese national in the past years. Only Argentina’s Lionel Messi has 365 wins after Ronaldo. Italy’s goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon who plays alongside Ronaldo in Juventus stands third in the list with 350 wins.

Starting his career back in 1992, Ronaldo made his senior debut for Sporting CP B in 2002. He joined Manchester United in 2003 under head coach Sir Alex Ferguson. In 196 appearances for the Red Devils, the Portuguese has netted 84 times. Six years later he set sail to join Spanish giant Real Madrid. In his 292 appearances for Madrid, he has scored 311 goals. In 2018, Ronaldo joined Italy’s Juventus and has already racked up 77 goals.

He is preceded by Argentine club legend Omar Sivori, with 84, and Felice Borel (80) who scored more in their first 100 appearances for the Old Lady.

On Sunday, Paulo Dybala gave Juventus the lead after opening the scoresheet in the 57th minute. Genoa’s Stefano Sturaro however equalised in the 61st minute. Luck ran out for Genoa as they conceded two penalties to concede the game. Ronaldo scored from the spot in the 78th and the 89th minutes of the game.

After Matchday 11, Juventus (23 points) are fourth in the Serie A table behind Milan (27 points), Inter Milan (24 points) and Napoli (23 points).

On Monday, the UEFA Champions League last 16 draw was announced where Juventus have been scheduled to take on Porto.
