Ronaldo equals Serie A goals record

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored for the 11th consecutive Serie A game, equalling the record set by Gabriel Batistuta and Fabio Quagliarella.

Ronaldo found the net against SPAL at the Stadio Paolo Mazza this evening.

Ronaldo had previously netted in 10 consecutive games, a run stretching from December 1 when he scored in the 2-2 draw against Sassuolo.

In that streak, the Portuguese star scored 15 times.

Ronaldo now equals previous Serie A record holders Batistuta and Quagliarella for finding the net in 11 rounds on the trot.

The legendary Argentine hitman scored in the first 11 games of the 1994-95 season for Fiorentina.

Batistuta’s record remained intact for over 24 years, when Quagliarella equalled the record last season.

The former Napoli and Juventus striker scored 14 times over the 11-game run from October 2018 through to January 2019.

Batistuta, by contrast, netted 13 times during his stretch, from September to November in 1994.

Ronaldo has now joined the record, and could stand out on his own should he score against Inter in the Derby d’Italia next week.
