Red-Hot Ronaldo Matches Two Records

Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has continued his red-hot form in Serie A, matching two more records on the weekend.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see all three players who have scored in five consecutive Serie A away matches since 2000.

The Portuguese forward was once again on the scoresheet for the Italian giants on the weekend, netting his side's second goal in their 3-0 win over Fiorentina.

In doing so, Ronaldo became only the third player to score in five successive Serie A away game this century, as TeamCRonaldo pointed out.

Ronaldo's run started at Frosinone on matchday five, before he added goals at Udinese, Empoli, AC Milan and Udinese.

In addition, Ronaldo also equalled a 61-year-old Juventus record in becoming the first player to score 10 goals or more after 14 games in his first Serie A season since John Charles in 1957/58.
