Cristiano Ronaldo played his 1,000th professional match today and added another goal to his scoring chart.
His goal today means that he has scored for a record-equalling 11th consecutive Serie A game this season.
With his goal and a second goal from Ramsey, Juventus extended their league lead on Saturday.
Cr7, as he is popularly known, has scored 25 goals in all competitions for Juventus this season. He scored 16 goals in 11 straight matches.
The old lady has widened the gap between them and second place Lazio following a 2-1 win over basement club SPAL.
Ronaldo gave his side the lead six minutes before the end of the first half. With that goal, he equalled the records held by Gabriel Batistuta and Fabio Quagliarella.
However, the 5-time Ballon D’Or winner missed a chance to get a second goal when his free-kick hit the crossbar.
In the second half of the game, Ramsey netted in his second league goal of the season, thanks to a cross from Paulo Dybala. However, VAR awarded a Penalty to SPAL for a Daniele Rugani foul on Simone Missiroli. Subsequently, Petagna converted the penalty into a goal for the host side and earned them a point in the end.
By the way, Juventus have not been able to beat SPAL away from home for the past two seasons. In any case, Sarri’s side takes a four-point lead on the Seria A table pending second place Lazio’s travel to Genoa on Sunday. While third-place Inter Milan who are six points behind Juventus will host Sampdoria.
In Spain, the Catalan giants thrashed Eibar 5 goals nothing, thanks to four much-needed goals from Lionel Messi. Now Barca tops the La Liga table with 2 points after Levante defeated their rival Real Madrid.
