Cristiano Ronaldo’s remarkable level of consistency at the top level of European football continued after he notched his 20th goal of the season for Juventus against Sassuolo on Sunday.
Ronaldo headed Juve's second goal in a comfortable 3-0 victory at MAPEI Stadium to extend their lead at the top of Serie A to 11 points.
It means the 34-year-old has now scored at least 20 goals in all competitions in each of the last 13 seasons.
It is an astonishing level of durability from the Portuguese, who shows no signs of slowing down.
His impressive start to life at the Bianconeri means he is likely to be in contention to win the Ballon d’Or for the sixth time – 11 years after he was first crowned the greatest football player in the world.
The last time Ronaldo failed to break the 20-goal mark was the 2005-06 campaign, when he scored 12 goals in what was just his third season at Manchester United.
As he approached his mid-30s, some had questioned whether Ronaldo’s skills were on the wane, but his early performances for Massimiliano Allegri's side suggest he is showing no signs of decline.
