Juventus are thanking their stars for directing Cristiano Ronaldo to Turin and the Portuguese has continued to show awesome quality for the club in his debut season in Italy.
In 12 appearances in Serie A, the Portuguese phenomenon scored 8 goals and assisted another 5. He can also break various records with Juventus and we present you with some of the most notable ones.
If he continues with his goalscoring form, Ronaldo can become the Juventus player with most goals in a single season. The current record holder is Ferenc Hirzer, who scored 35 goals in 26 matches almost a hundred years ago during the 1925-26 season.
At the same time, Ronaldo could potentially become the player to score most goals in a single Serie A season. The record was set by Gino Rossetti for Torino in 1928-29 (36 goals), while Gonzalo Higuain matched in 2015-16 for Napoli.
Given that he continues with this amazing form and becomes the league’s top scorer, he would become the first player in the history of football to become top scorer in the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A. The Portuguese won the top scorer crown in Spain three times and the Premier League prize once.
Juventus have declared the Champions League trophy as their number one goal this season and if the Bianconeri achieve this goal, this would write down Ronaldo in the history books as well, as it would be his third Champions League title with three teams, becoming European champion with United in 2007-08 and with Real Madrid on four occasions.
The only player to have managed the same was Clarence Seedorf, who won the trophy with AC Milan, Real Madrid and Ajax. And lastly, probably the most simple of them all, as Juventus’ dominance in Serie A is staggering.
If Juventus win the league titles for the 8th time in a row this season, Ronaldo will become the first player in football history to win titles in England (Manchester United), Spain (Real Madrid) and Italy. In short, this could be a record-breaking season for the superstar.
