Cristiano Ronaldo has added another Italian soccer goal record to his name.

Ever since Ronaldo joins Juventus in 2018, the Portuguese superstar has been tremendous in scoring. In his debut season in Italy, Ronaldo scored 28 times as The Old Lady won a domestic double. Incredibly, “CR7” managed the said tally in 70 games to become the second quickest player to ever do it.

And now, Ronaldo becomes the second fastest player to reach 50 goals in Italian soccer. According to the list compiled by The Daily Mail, Ronaldo has now scored a total of 50 goals in just 70 games at the age of 35.

The legendary forward has surpassed the original Ronaldo, also known as “Il Fenomino,” who stands at 3rd after completing the feat in 77 games. The Brazilian legend signed for Inter Milan in 1997 for a then world-record fee and, two years later, he was celebrating his 50th goal for the club after scoring against Piacenza.

The number one spot still belongs to Andriy, The only person to better Ronaldo's tally. It took Shevchenko one fewer game than Ronaldo to break the record and completed 50 goals in just 69 games

Shevchenko reached 50 goals in his second campaign by scoring a brace against Roma on Jan. 21, 2001.

Since the start of the new decade, Ronaldo has been putting on a goalscoring show. In fact, the Juventus star has now scored against every active Serie A side he has faced.

To put it into perspective, all 18 sides Ronaldo has scored against are Inter Milan, Lazio, Atalanta, Roma, Cagliari, Parma, Torino, Verona, AC Milan, Napoli, Udinese, Bologna, Fiorentina, Sassuolo, Sampdoria, Genoa and Spal.

It is expected that Ronaldo can set another record next month as he now has the chance to make a sweep if he manages to score a goal when Juventus play Brescia and Lecce on February 16 and March 15 respectively.

Despite all the glory he has added to his legacy, Ronaldo never expected that he will be a soccer icon at the age of 35. In fact, he even admitted that thought he would be a "fisherman in Madeira” when he reached that age.

"At 35? I thought I was going to be a fisherman in Madeira," Ronaldo said to Canal 11.

"This never came into my mind. I wanted to be a professional footballer, but I didn't think I was going to win everything I've won,” Ronaldo continued.
