Ronaldo matches Anastasi record

Cristiano Ronaldo is the first Juventus player to score nine goals in his opening 13 Serie A games since Pietro Anastasi in 1968-69.

The Portugal international hit the milestone during this evening’s match against SPAL in Turin.

Although it took him until the fourth round to break his duck, scoring both goals in a 2-1 victory over Sassuolo, there has been no stopping him since.

In his last 10 Serie A games, CR7 has contributed nine goals and five assists.

It means he joins Genoa forward Krzysztof Piatek as the Capocannoniere in Serie A on nine goals.

He is also the first Juventus player to reach nine in his debut 13 Serie A games since Anastasi in 1968-69.
