What Scoring Records Could Cristiano Ronaldo Break With Juventus?

Having achieved all that there was to achieve at Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo joins Juventus amid a whole host of fresh possibilities. Along with the chance of adding (almost certainly) a Serie A title to his numerous league wins in England and Spain, Ronaldo will have the opportunity to surpass any number of goal-records in Italian football.

Scoring 450 goals across 438 games with Real Madrid, Ronaldo's list of individual records is astounding. Alongside his five Ballon d'Or wins, Ronaldo is Real's all-time top goalscorer; as well as being the record goalscorer in both La Liga and the Champions League. The only player to score 50 goals or more in six different seasons, Ronaldo also holds the record for most hat-tricks in La Liga history (34).

On and on it goes, Ronaldo's move to Juventus will open up new records to potentially catch and surpass. Although he is now 33-years-old and inevitably waning, you would hardly put some of these beyond him.

Italian Scoring Records:

Serie A:

All-Time Top Goalscorer - Silvio Piola (274 Goals)

At his age, it is highly unlikely that Ronaldo has the necessary 275 goals in him to come close to Piola's long-standing record. With the 35-year-old Fabio Quagliarella, Ronaldo's new (old) teammate Gonzalo Higuaín and Inter Milan's Mauro Icardi among the active players topping the chase for Piola, even they are are still well over 100 goals shy of Piola.

Most Goals in a Match - Silvio Piola / Omar Sivori (6)

Understandably, the 1938 World Cup winner holds this record also. In 2015, he twice scored 5 goals in two different league matches for Real Madrid.


Most Goals in a Single Season - Gonzalo Higuain (36)

Almost certainly one Ronaldo will have his sights on, Ronaldo hit more than 36 league goals on three occasions; although the last of them was in 2014/15.

Most Penalties Scored - Francesco Totti (71)


Barring a return to the bad old days of Calciopoli, it doesn't seem likely that Ronaldo - assuming he takes the club's penalties - will get the required 72 penalties to take over his time in Italy.


Most Free-Kicks Scored - Siniša Mihajlović / Andrea Pirlo (28)

Another one that may be hard to track down in his four-year stint with Juventus, maybe if Ronaldo more consistently tries to hit free-kicks as he did against Spain in the World Cup, things might get interesting.


Oldest Goalscorer in the Serie A - Alessandro Costacurta (41 Years, 25 Days)

Oldest Player to Score a Brace - Francesco Totti (39 Years, 206 Days)

Oldest Player to Score a Hat-trick - Silvio Piola (37 Years, 51 Days)


Oldest Player to Win Serie A Top-Scorer - Luca Toni (38 Years)

Ronaldo might be some way off his 40s yet, but, he has talked about playing for some years beyond his current 33-years. Although he might not find himself in Turin that long, these are probably not as far-fetched as they might seem.

Juventus Scoring Records:

As for the club he is joining, Ronaldo will have to do plenty of work to catch some of these impressive individual scoring records.


Most Goals in a Season (All Games) - Gonzalo Higuain (32 Goals)

Most Goals in a Serie A Season - Felice Borel (31)

Most Goals in a Serie A Match - Omar Sivori (6)


Most Goals in a European Match - Fabrizio Ravanelli (5)
