Cristiano Ronaldo matched Josef Bican’s all-time record goal-scorer when he struck for Juventus in a 3-1 win over Sassuolo with ex-Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey scoring his first of the season.
The 4-time Ballon d’Or winner, Cristiano Ronaldo became the joint-highest goalscorer in football history with an injury-time strike for Juventus against Sassuolo.
Ronaldo drilled home to award his side a 3-1 win taking his career tally to an incredible 759 for club and country. This meant the Portugal star joined Josef Bican at the top of the game’s all-time scoring record and will undoubtedly overtake him as the game’s most prolific marksman.
Pele’s Instagram bio proclaims him (Bican) as “leading Goal Scorer of All Time” although there is a debate over whether all of the Brazil legend’s strikes were in official matches.
Bican played for clubs including Rapid Vienna, Slavia Prague, and Dynamo Prague in the 1930s, 40s, and early 50s, representing Austria and Czechoslovakia at an international level.
Ronaldo’s strikes have of course come for Sporting Lisbon, Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Juve, while he is Portugal’s all-time leading scorer with 101 goals for his country.
He is Serie A’s top scorer this season, with his latest goal taking his tally to 15 from 13 league games, while he has also plundered four in the Champions League.
Former Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey and ex-man City man Danilo were also on the scoresheet as Andrea Pirlo’s side climbed to fourth place in Serie A following a third successive win.
