Ronaldo's Teammate Breaks Balotelli Record

One of Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo's teammates, who was the victim of racial abuse recently, has broken a Serie A record set by Mario Balotelli.

The Bianconeri had to postpone their title celebrations after losing 2-1 to SPAL on Saturday, with Ronaldo and several other first-team regulars seemingly being rested for the second leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final with Ajax Amsterdam this week.

However, Moise Kean had reason to celebrate. Two weeks after he was racially abused by Cagliari fans, the 19-year-old became the youngest player to net in four successive Serie A games, as AS pointed out.

Balotelli previously held the record after netting in three successive Serie A matches back in 2009, but Kean's goal against SPAL took his tally to four consecutive strikes in Italy's top flight.

The youngster scored once in a 1-0 win over Empoli, once at Cagliari, another in a 2-1 win over AC Milan, and Juve's only strike in their 2-1 defeat to SPAL.

Overall, Kean has now scored six goals in just eight Serie A appearances in this campaign.

Do you think Ronaldo's influence can help Kean become one of football's best forwards? Have your say in the comments section below.
