Cristiano Ronaldo Equals Juventus Goalscoring Record With Penalty Double_Ogar Erik

Cristiano Ronaldo converted two penalties in a 3-0 win over Fiorentina to match a Juventus goalscoring record and bring up the latest milestone of his illustrious career equalling a club record held by former striker David Trezeguet.


The Portugal international, whose double brought up the landmark of 50 goals for the Turin club, is two away from the Serie A record held by former Fiorentina striker Gabriel Batistuta, who struck in 11 straight matches in 1994.


Fiorentina held their own for much of the game but Ronaldo’s cool head, plus a stoppage-time third from defender Matthijs de Ligt (90+1), ensured Juve Maurizio Sarri’s leaders bounced back from last week’s 2-1 defeat by Napoli.
