Ronaldo Breaks 95 Year-Old Record As Juventus Defeat Lyon

 Cristiano Ronaldo has now broken the record for the most goals scored in a single season for Juventus (36). A record which stood for 95 years!

The Portuguese has scored an incredible 132 goals in Europe’s elite competition for Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus.

It’s in the knockout stages where he really comes alive, notching more than 60 after the group stages.

He’s also won the competition five times, scoring in three finals.

And he needed to produce another miracle if he wanted his Juventus side to get past Lyon in the last-16.

Juve trailed Lyon 1-0 from their first leg and, when Memphis Depay put the French side ahead in Turin, Ronaldo’s side were staring defeat in the face.

But not if Ronaldo had anything to do with it.

He equalised with a penalty and then, in the second half, produced an incredible strike with his left foot to put the Old Lady within one goal of progressing to the quarter-finals.

Not only was it a sensational strike, but it was also pretty significant.

That’s because it was his 37th goal of the season which broke an all-time Juventus record for most goals in a single season.

Juve were founded 122 years ago…

Despite this record breaking win, Juve are however out of the Champions League.
