Cristiano Ronaldo has set another record, as Juventus swept Udinese aside at the Allianz Stadium on Sunday
The reigning Serie A holders secured a comfortable 3-1 victory over out-of-sorts Friulians, with the Portuguese forward netting a brace in the first half.
Ronaldo’s haul against Udinese took his tally to 11 across all competitions this season, as he became the first player to reach double figures for 15 seasons in a row.
Although no player before him has managed to accomplish such a flattering record in Europe’s top-five leagues, the 34-year-old star still puts his team’s success before his individual achievements.
“The most important thing was to win,” Ronaldo told Sky Sport Italia after the triumph.
“This is how we should play, with confidence. Individual performances aren’t what matters, but the collective effort.”
Widely criticized for underwhelming performances at the beginning of the 2019/20 campaign, Ronaldo seems to be moving through the gears, having hit the net in four consecutive outings in all competitions.
The Turin giants have closed the gap on Inter Milan, who were held to a 1-1 draw to Fiorentina on Sunday night but are still leading the way in Serie A on goal difference.
