Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo has scored more goals than any other player in 2020

Cristiano Ronaldo has been on fire for Juventus in 2020

Cristiano Ronaldo made history on Monday evening in Juventus' 2-1 win over Lazio.

The Portuguese forward scored twice for his side, reaching the 50-goal mark in the famous black and white shirt in just 61 Serie A games.

No player has ever reached a half-century of goals faster than the 35-year-old and it means Ronaldo has now scored 50 goals in Italy, Spain and England - the first player to ever do so.

Not bad, eh? The Portuguese superstar is also now joint-second alongside Brazilian legend Romario on the list of players with the most official goals scored, with 734.

The Juve man will no doubt have Pele's total of 767 official goals in his sights after his superb start to 2020.

Ronaldo vs Lazio

Ronaldo has scored 30 goals in Serie A alone in 2019/20 and remarkably, no player in Europe has scored more goals than him this year.

Those numbers are absolutely incredible for a 35-year-old described by some as 'in decline', even if the Portuguese has been fortunate to have had opportunities from the penalty spot in recent weeks.

The Italian top-flight is the most represented in the top 10 with four players, putting to bed the stereotypical view that Serie A is a lower scoring division dominated by defences.

Lewandowski's goal-to-game ratio is by far the best, with the Bayern striker averaging 1.16 goals-per-game in 2020 ahead of the return of the Champions League next month.

Overall, the Pole is averaging a goal every 81 minutes across the 2019/20 season and Ronaldo is just behind him with a strike rate of once every 88 minutes.

But neither of those two comes close to Luis Muriel's average. The Atalanta striker has scored 18 goals in Serie A this season, averaging one every 64 minutes - madness.
