Ronaldo scored his 757th and 758th goal in either half of a 4-1 win as he became the second highest goalscorer pushing Pele (757) down to the third spot. 

 

Five-time Ballond'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo has overtaken Brazilian legend Pele in the list of all-time leading goalscorers by netting twice for Juventus in a Serie A match against Udinese on Sunday.

Ronaldo scored his 757th and 758th goal in either half of a 4-1 win as he became the second highest goalscorer pushing Pele (757) down to the third spot. 

Summer signing Federico Chiesa and Paulo Dybala also got their name on the scoresheet, but Ronaldo stole the limelight with his record-breaking feat.

Juventus superstar now sits second in the list of all-time goal-scoring charts in football, only behind Austrian-Czech legend Josef Bican, who had netted 805 official goals in 530 matches between 1932 and 1955.
