Less than a month before completing 36 years, Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo continues to break records and fold them on his way to the top scorer in the world that only Argentine star Lionel Messi can compete with.
With his goal, which he scored on Sunday against Sassuolo, Ronaldo achieved two unprecedented new records, and became the first player to score at least 15 goals in the last 15 seasons in Europe’s five major league competitions.
The 35-year-old Portuguese striker fired a powerful low shot to cement Juventus’ 3-1 victory over Sassuolo in Italian Serie A stoppage time.
Cristiano Ronaldo continues to set records 🔥💪
Ronaldo scored his goal number 759 and equaled Joseph Petsan as the most-recorded player in professional football (clubs and the first team).#Cristiano Ronaldo | Juventus |#The Italian League #beINSerieA | #SerieA pic.twitter.com/5AmUSg1bQ4

The Portuguese captain also reached his 759 goal at club and national level, and broke a number of outstanding records, the most important of which was that he equaled the record recorded in the name of Joseph Pecan as the most goal-scoring player in the history of football, which is 759 goals.
Ronaldo remains Real Madrid’s all-time top scorer with 450 goals, Portugal (102) and the European Champions League (134).
Ronaldo joined Juventus in the summer of 2018, and won the league title in two consecutive seasons, and scored a total of 84 goals in 104 matches with the club.
And Ronaldo is one goal away from achieving his dream and surpassing Pekan to become the world’s top scorer throughout history, and he is only 7 goals away to become the record holder and win the world top scorer title at the level of national teams, which is currently occupied by former Iranian star Ali Daei with 109.
🤔 In your opinion, who will be able to break the number of “Don” Ronaldo?

After Ronaldo has already surpassed the Brazilian legend Pele and his compatriot Romario in the number of goals, the Argentine star Lionel Messi (715 goals) remains the only one able to catch up with Ronaldo and break his records or some of them.
Messi is younger than him by more than two years, which the Don realizes and intensifies his efforts to continue as long as possible until he scores the largest number of goals that make him the undisputed world’s greatest scorer.
