CR7 Climbs To Top Of Serie A Chart, Juve Only Unbeaten Team In Europe

Despite Juventus dropping two points on the weekend, Cristiano Ronaldo had reason to celebrate after climbing to the top of the Serie A goalscoring chart, while the Bianconeri remain unbeaten this season.

On Saturday, the Serie A table-toppers were leading 3-1 against Parma courtesy of a brace from Ronaldo and a goal by defender Daniele Rugani before a late double from former Arsenal winger Gervinho pulled things even at the Allianz Stadium.

It was the first time in 94 games that Juventus dropped points despite having a two-goal lead, as ESPN pointed out.

The Portugal captain's brace, though, took his goals tally for the season to 17 strikes in Serie A – more than any other player in Italy's top flight.

The 33-year-old overtook 36-year-old Sampdoria striker Fabio Quagliarella, whose record-equalling run of scoring in 11 successive games was ended against Napoli.

Despite his goals, Ronaldo was not happy with gifting Parma a point after their late goals.

"I'm happy about the goals but not the result. This is football," he told Juventus' official website.

"We dropped back in the final few minutes and Parma capitalised on our mistakes.

"I don't think the last few results are because of our heavy workload. We're relaxed and not worried.

"We're confident in the ability of this team and its technical quality, as well as the coach and the staff."

Juve have now conceded six goals in their past two games – they were dumped out of the Coppa Italia following a 3-0 defeat to Atalanta last week.

However, after Paris Saint-Germain lost 2-1 to Olympique Lyon on Sunday, Ronaldo's side are now the only unbeaten team in Europe's top five leagues, having won 19 of their 22 Serie A games, while drawing the other three.
