Cristiano Ronaldo has yet again reached another goal-scoring milestone after scoring a late goal in Juventus 3-1 win over Sassuolo on Sunday night.
The veteran forward scored late to ensure Juventus won emphatically over a resilient Sassuolo side, helping Andrea Pirlo’s side close the gap on league leaders AC Milan.
Weston McKennie and Paulo Dybala had to be substituted early in the first half due to injury, the Bianconeri’s took the lead through a thunderous Danilo’s strike.
Ten-man Sassuolo side equalised through Gregoire Defrel, after Pedro Obiang saw red in the final minutes of the first half.
An 82 minute Aaron Ramsey goal and a late Ronaldo goal secured all three points for the Serie A champions.
The goal now means Ronaldo is the joint highest goal scorer along with Josef Bianca on 759 goals and the only player to score at least 15 goals in each of the last 15 seasons in the European top five leagues, having reached that mark in every campaign since 2006-07, according to Goal.com.
