Ronaldo Joins Illustrious ‘400 League Goals’ Club

Cristiano Ronaldo sits on three goals in Serie A this season, and has joined an illustrious club of just five players in history, who scored more than 400 league goals in Europe, while his long-standing rival Lionel Messi is still some goals short.

The Portugal captain netted his first Serie A goals against Sassuolo on match day four and added one more against Frosinone the week after.

In doing so, the 33-year-old became only the fifth player to reach 400 league goals in Europe, as reported by @juvestats1897.

Ronaldo scored 84 Premier League goals during his time at Manchester United, 311 for Real Madrid in LaLiga, three in LigaNOS in the early stages of his career for Sporting, and three in Serie A to take his overall tally to 401 league strikes.

Only four players have managed to score more. Uwe Seeler with 406 league goals and Jimmy McGory with 410 could soon be overtaken by Ronaldo, while Ferenc Puskas with 514 and Josef Bican with 519 have over 100 league strikes more than the Portuguese.
