ROME: Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo set another scoring record on Sunday as he became the first player to net at least 15 goals in each of the last 15 seasons in Europe’s top five leagues.

The 35-year-old Portuguese fired a low diagonal shot into the bottom corner to seal a 3-1 win for his side against Sassuolo in stoppage time.

It took his tally to 15 goals in 13 Serie A appearances this season, a goal landmark he has reached every year since the 2006-07 campaign, during spells with Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juve.

The record applies to the top five leagues in the UEFA country coefficient: Spain’s La Liga, England’s Premier League, Italy’s Serie A, Germany’s Bundesliga and France’s Ligue 1.

Ronaldo joined Juventus in the summer of 2018 and has won back-to-back league titles in Turin, scoring a total of 84 goals in 104 appearances for the club.

The Portugal captain has now netted a remarkable 759 goals for club and country and holds a plethora of individual records.

They include being the all-time top scorer for Real Madrid (450 goals) and the Portugal national team (102), as well as the top scorer in Champions League history (134).
