Ronaldo reached this landmark moment during Juventus’ 2-1 win over rivals Lazio on Monday.

During Juve’s clash against Lazio, Ronaldo scored a brace – one of them being a spot-kick. With that pental goal, Cristiano also equaled Giuseppe Signori’s record for most penalty goals in a season in 1994-95 – 12 goals.

Maurizio Sarri’s men are currently hunting down yet another Italian league title, with Lazio and Atalanta still being a handful of sides breathing down their neck as Serie A reaches the final weeks of action.

In the game, Ronaldo scored two second-half goals in minute 51 and 54 for the Turin giants before Ciro Immobile halved the deficit in the 83rd minute for the eagles. Ronaldo also became the first Juve player since 1952 to score 30 goals in a SerieA season.

At the international level, Ronaldo lies one outright finish short of a century, with 99 goals across all competitions for Portugal, with only Iran’s Ali Daei exceeding his prolific total on the global stage.
Juventus is chasing another Series A crown in what is the first campaign at the helm of manager Maurizio Sarri, though Lazio remains one of a handful of sides breathing their neck through the final weeks of a peculiar season bisected by a global pandemic.
