The 35-year-old netted both of Juventus' goals in their 2-1 win over Lazio, which saw them take a massive step towards the 2019/20 Serie A title.

The Bianconeri are now eight points clear of second-placed Inter Milan with just four games to spare.

Ronaldo had more reason to celebrate as he became only the third player in Juventus' history to score at least 30 goals in a single Serie A campaign.

The last player to achieve this massive milestone was John Hansen, with the 30 strikes, back in the 1951/52 campaign, while Felice Borel went one better in the 1933/34 season. Ronaldo, though, has four more games to add to his tally and become the sole record holder for Juve.

The Portuguese forward also climbed into joint-second place in the European Golden Shoe race after equalling the tally of Ciro Immobile, who became only the fifth Italian player score 30 goals in a single campaign, as per Opta Sports.
