Cristiano Ronaldo equals record no Juventus player has matched for 60 years

Former Real Madrid forward Ronaldo went scoreless in matches against Chievo, Lazio and Parma to start the season

It may have taken Cristiano Ronaldo three games to get off the mark for Juventus , but that hasn’t stopped him equalling a 60-year old record.

Former Real Madrid forward Ronaldo went scoreless in matches against Chievo, Lazio and Parma to start the season, before finally notching twice against Sassuolo on September 16.

But the goals have flowed since, scoring five in five games to take his total to seven strikes in 10 Serie A matches so far.

The last player to manage seven goals in their first 10 league fixtures for the Bianconeri was Welshman John Charles, who achieved the feat in the 1957-58 campaign.

Charles ended his debut campaign with 28 strikes and Ronaldo will fancy passing that figure in the remaining months of his first season in Italy.

There are a host of big names that have come and gone from Juventus in recent years without managing to score seven times in their first 10 Serie A games.

Despite his impressive start, Ronaldo only sits second in the Serie A scoring charts this term, trailing Genoa striker Krzysztof Piatek by two goals.

Ronaldo netted an incredible 450 goals in 438 appearances for Real Madrid following his move to the Bernabeu from Manchester United .

It made him Los Blancos’ all-time greatest goal scorer, and Real have undoubtedly missed the Portuguese since his move away from the Spanish capital.

A 5-1 drubbing at the hands of Clasico rivals Barcelona at the Nou Camp on Sunday left Real in ninth position in La Liga, already seven points off the title pace, and saw them sack manager Julen Lopetegui.
