Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score 50 goals in the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A after a double in Juventus’ 2-1 win over Lazio moved the champions to within touching distance of retaining the title.
After a first half in which Juve’s Alex Sandro hit the post early on and Ciro Immobile then did so at the other end, Ronaldo put the hosts ahead with a 51st-minute penalty.
The spot kick was awarded when Ronaldo shot was handled by Bastos, with referee Daniele Orsato having consulted with VAR and checked the pitchside monitor.
Three minutes later Ronaldo then slotted in again, having been teed up by Paolo Dybala, for his 30th Serie A goal of the season, which made him the fastest player to have reached the milestone in the League.
Maurizio Sarri labelled Cristiano Ronaldo “extraordinary” after the Juventus superstar became the fastest player to score 50 Serie A goals .
