Cristiano Ronaldo has become the first player in football history to score 50 goals in Italy's Serie A, Spain's La Liga and the Premier League.

Ronaldo scored twice on Monday to ensure Juventus would not lose to Lazio for a third time this season.

Ronaldo's double strike at home within three minutes in a 2-1 win meant Juventus could clinch a ninth straight league title this week.

With four rounds remaining, Juventus are eight points clear of Inter Milan, nine ahead of Atalanta, and 11 in front of Lazio - who trailed the Bianconeri by just one point before the break for the coronavirus pandemic.

Juventus earned a measure of revenge after losing twice to Lazio in December - in Serie A and the Italian Super Cup.

Ronaldo converted a penalty after the VAR determined a handball, then finished off a counter attack courtesy of an assist from Paulo Dybala.

Football world in awe of ‘ridiculous’ Ronaldo

Ronaldo and Immobile are level atop the Italian league scoring chart with 30 goals for the season.

Portuguese ace Ronaldo has scored nine times in eight matches since the season restart to become the first player to score at least 50 goals in the the top flights of England, Spain and Italy.

His 51 in Serie A adds to 311 in La Liga and 84 in the Premier League

“Records are always important, but the most important thing is that the team wins,” Ronaldo said.

“We are a phenomenal team and we showed that again today, although we always want to improve and raise the bar.”

Both sides had efforts hit the post in the first half; a headed volley from Juve's Alex Sandro, and a long-range effort from Immobile.

Ronaldo also headed off the crossbar after being set up again by Dybala.
