"It's a step forward in my career," said Cristiano Ronaldo when he arrived at Juventus in 2018. And, with clear samples today, he evidenced it by leaving his signature in Vecchia Signora to enhance his figure in the great history of football. With total validity, at 36 years old, and at the high level of Europe, the forward expanded his repertoire of records and, on this occasion, reached 100 goals with the Bianconeri among all competitions.

The Portuguese attacker was the author of the second celebration of the cast of Andrea Pirlo against Sassuolo, from a great reception after a pass from Adrien Rabiot, to later define with total left-handed comfort. Thus, he reached the hundred of celebrations, although, to highlight his milestone even more, the Portuguese did it with total speed unlike the previous historical Juve players. And he was the first to do it in just three seasons with the Zebras jersey.

But that's not all, as Cristiano Ronaldo equaled former Brazilian player Romario's all-time record of scoring at least 100 goals for three different clubs. The Portuguese did it in Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus, while Chapulín did it in Vasco da Gama, PSV and Flamengo. And as if that were not enough, Cristiano is the only player in history to exceed 100 goals not only in three different clubs, but also at the national team level. Craziness!

Paulo Dyabala is also a centenary

The Argentine Juventus forward was another player who, in the Serie A victory against Sassuolo, reached 100 goals for the Turin club. For the Cordovan, the hundred occurred in his match No. 252. He also scored 21 in Palermo, 17 in Instituto and 2 in the Argentine National Team.
