The Portuguese superstar has added to his already long list of records.
Cristiano Ronaldo is no new to setting records and his recent record tells us that he will keep on adding more. In Juventus' 3-0 win over Spezia in Serie A, which was the 600th league game of his career, he scored the 20th league goal of the season. In doing so, he has become the second player to score 20 goals for the 12th consecutive seasons which began since the 2009/2010 season.

The superstar is only the second football player to make such a unique feat after Lionel Messi who accomplished it last season. Messi, however, can break the record as he is in 19 goals already this term and you can bet your money that he will do it in the coming matches.
Since his arrival in Italy, he's scored 72 goals so far which is the most a player in Serie A has scored in that period. He netted 21 goals in his debut season and 31 goals in his second.

Currently, the Portugal captain has 20 goals in 21 appearances this season. With 14 games still left to be played of this season, he has a good chance to better his 31 goals this season and claim his first-ever Capocannoniere trophy (Italian highest goal scorer award). Not bad for a guy who turned 36 years old last month!
