Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 100 goals for Juventus in the quickest time in the club’s history. In Serie A action on Wednesday, Ronaldo hit the milestone by scoring just before halftime against Sassuolo, giving his team a two-goal advantage at the break.
The Portugal international has scored 100 goals in 131 games for Juventus, becoming the first player in the club’s history to do so in fewer than three seasons.
The Portuguese footballer has also made headlines by becoming the first player to score 100 or more club goals in three different countries. Ronaldo has also scored 103 goals for his country, Portugal.
Just Omar Sivori and Roberto Baggio had reached the 100-goal milestone in fewer than five seasons until Wednesday night.
Ronaldo, who joined the club from Real Madrid ahead of the 2018-19 season, accomplished the feat near the end of his third season with the club.
Juve had to work hard for their win, with returning goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon saving an early penalty. Goals from Adrien Rabiot, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Paulo Dybala held them in fifth place. They are now two points off the Champions League qualifying spots.
Later in the same game, Paulo Dybala scored his 100th Juventus goal, joining Ronaldo in meeting the same milestone.
