Cristiano Ronaldo continues to raise the bar on Tuesday as he fired Juventus to a 3-0 win over Spezia. The Portuguese goalscorer was joined on the scoresheet by Alvaro Morata and Federico Chiesa as Juve looked to keep up with the pace in the Serie A title race. And, with his 83rd-minute goal, Ronaldo made history once again as one of the game’s greatest-ever goalscorers.
With his goal on Tuesday, Ronaldo became the only player to score at least 20 goals consecutively for the last 12 seasons in the top-five European Leagues.
