Cristiano Ronaldo becomes all-time leading scorer with 760th career goal

Cristiano Ronaldo became football’s all-time leading goalscorer by firing Juventus to Italian Super Cup glory against Napoli.

Portugal international Ronaldo registered the 760th strike of a remarkable career in the 64th minute to help reigning Serie A champions Juve claim the trophy with a 2-0 win.

The 35-year-old former Manchester United and Real Madrid forward moved one goal ahead of Czech player Josef Bican, who officially managed 759 strikes between 1931 and 1955.

Lorenzo Insigne had a chance to ruin Ronaldo’s milestone moment but missed an 80th-minute penalty before Alvaro Morata wrapped up the win for Andrea Pirlo’s side deep into stoppage time.

Elsewhere in Italy, sixth-placed Atalanta salvaged a 1-1 Serie A draw at Udinese after Colombia striker Luis Muriel cancelled out a first-minute opener from former Watford midfielder Roberto Pereyra.

Bayern Munich remain four points clear at the top of the Bundesliga following an unconvincing 1-0 success away to Augsburg.

Robert Lewandowski, the division’s leading scorer, claimed his 22nd league goal of the campaign by converting a 13th-minute penalty.
