Former Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo, just made history for his current club, Juventus, with his 20th league goal on Saturday.

For some, the older you get, the weaker you become but for Cristiano Ronaldo, he is just like fine wine, getting better with the age.

Cristiano Ronaldo pulled the opening goal from a solo effort, after receiving a pass from Dybala close to the centre of the midfield. He sprinted forward, beating his marker for pace and slotting it past the goalkeeper of Hellas Verona.

The 35-year-old Portuguese Internantional has become the first Juventus player in history to find the back of the net in 10 consecutive games.

Although the impressive goal wasn't enough to give Juventus the win, it, however aded to Ronaldo’s insane football records.

Cr7 broke the record set by the legendary David Trezeguet, who managed the feat in nine matches on the bounce.

Having made history in the English Premier League with Manchester United and in La Liga at Real Madrid, Ronaldo is already setting records in Serie A in what seems to look like a twilight challenge in his career.

Barely five days ago, Ronaldo reached the 50-goal milestone which makes him the second fastest player to reach 50 goals in Italian soccer. Ronaldo has now scored a total of 51 goals in just 70 games at the age of 35.

Cristiano Ronaldo surpassed his namesake and legendary forward, Delima Ronaldo also known as “Il Fenomino,” who stands at 3rd after completing the 50-goal hurl in 77 games, 7 matches more than Cristiano.

The Brazilian legend signed for Inter Milan in 1997 for a then world-record fee and, two years later, he celebrated his 50th goal for the club after scoring against Piacenza.
