– Cristiano Ronaldo scores for the 10th game in a row but Juventus lose 2-1 to Hellas Verona – The Portuguese who recently clocked 35 becomes the first player to ever do that for Juventus – Ronaldo has also scored 2️0+ league goals for the 11th season in succession Cristiano Ronaldo showed his audacity to defy his age (35) after playing a beautiful one-two with Dybala before making a run into the box and firing past the goalkeeper to become the first Juventus player to score in 10 straight Serie A games.
However, Ronaldo’s goal wasn’t enough to save Maurizio Sarri’s side as they fell 2-1 to Hellas Verona. Ronaldo’s goal came in the 65th minute after earlier being denied by the woodwork in the first half. But his goal sees him break a record that has been held by Frenchman David Trezeguet for 15 years. In 2005, David Trezeguet scored in nine straight domestic matches for Juventus but Ronaldo has now set a new benchmark for the club.

Batistuta holds the record of scoring in 11 consecutive games while Pascutti and Ronaldo scored in 10 consecutive games. The Portuguese will now have his eyes set on equalling Batistuta record and surpassing it. Despite showing his class once again, Ronaldo’s effort was not enough for Juventus as they were stunned by a Verona.
