After having scored for the Turin side in their battle against Napoli in the Italian super cup on Wednesday, Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo became the all-time leading soccer goalscorer.
The 35-year-old was predicted to hit the amazing benchmark against Inter on Sunday after edging closer to history by having scored to record levels against Sassuolo last week.
The renowned Juve forward, however, stood in line for the great occasion in the Italian Super Cup and promptly delivered against the men of Gennaro Gattuso as he discovered the back of the net – sending his special professional life to new amazing heights.
With the Austrian-Czech striker scoring 759 goals between 1931 and 1955, that effort moved him beyond Josef Bican.
The 760 of Ronaldo is not yet the ultimate achievement of goal scored by one player in football, as the 801 goals of Bican is still a big leap for the goal machine.
In his mouth-watering profession, the Portuguese now has 760 goals and is only obligated to broaden that database as he keeps improving at the summit of football history.
Only Lionel Messi, his unending rival, looks ready of exceeding his record. The superstar of Barcelona and Argentina has 715 professional goals for club and country, but has played less than 150 games so far and has time on his side, being Ronaldo’s junior for two years.
Nevertheless, this database belongs to Ronaldo for now. Throughout a profession which has seen him achieve success at Sporting Lisbon,
Manchester United, Real Madrid, Juventus and the Portugal national team, the forward, who turns 36 by February, has printed his name in the record books.
On January 3rd 2021, after a brace in a 4-1 Serie A home win over Udinese, Ronaldo moved above three-time Brazil World Cup winner Pele (757 career goals) into second on this ranking.
With an injury-time right-footed strike during Juve’s 3-1 home win over 10-man Sassuolo in Serie A on January 10, that put him within touching distance of Bican’s feat.
RONALDO IS ACTUALLY A GOAL MACHINE
In analyzing his goals – it really shows that he is actually a goal machine
Not only is his jaw-dropping scorecard stacked by his favored right foot. With this part of the body, he scores six of each 10 goals, but nearly two in 10 with his left and two in 10 with his head. In the 2014-15 summer,
one goal came off his elbow against Athletic Bilbao, and another bounced off his groin for Manchester United against West Ham in 2008.
Incidentally, most of his goals came from open play – 569 of them, a staggering 75%.
Penalties account for 18% of his goals, while from free-kicks he has netted 57.
And home comforts also don’t skew the results. In home matches, only 54.80 per cent of his goals have been scored, while 40 per cent have come on the road.
Neutral grounds have accounted for 45 goals, a touch more than 5% – international matches, cup finals.
But the secrets behind Ronaldo’s impressive record mean that he could possibly still have another five years at the top level, even well into his mid-thirties.
He showed little sign of weakness; conversely, he developed his game into the greatest goal machine, from being a vibrant all-round world class player.
Ronaldo will be looking to expand his record-breaking form next Sunday night at Inter Milan’s Serie A title rivals.* BEST DEALS & OFFERS*
