Ronaldo keeps setting the bar higher, yet another record!

Ronaldo keeps setting the bar higher, yet another record!

Cristiano Ronaldo's latest strike has led to yet another unmatched record as he sets another goalscoring mark with a late strike in Juventus win against Sassuolo.

This is not just a prove of the  Portuguese ability, but also a prove of longevity on the field of play.

The veteran striker struck late in Serie A to add some gloss to the Bianconeri's 3-1 victory over Sassuolo, helping Andrea Pirlo's side to close the gap on leaders Milan in their pursuit of another Scudetto crown.

Juventus saw Weston McKennie and Paulo Dybala forced out due to injury, but the Serie A champions were able to take the lead through a Danilo strike.

Gregoire Defrel provided the equalizer for 10-man Sassuolo, who were up against it after seeing Pedro Obiang sent off just before halftime.

Unfortunately for Sassuolo, they were unable to overcome their disadvantage, with substitute Aaron Ramsey, who replaced the injured McKennie, firing in the 82nd minute.

Ronaldo then sealed the three points in stoppage time, scoring his 15th goal of the season in the process.

While most goals for the 34-year-old are simply a case of adding another to his already remarkable tally, his latest is another reminder of the Portuguese star's longevity.

With Sunday's goal, Ronaldo became the only player to score at least 15 goals in each of the last 15 seasons in the top five leagues, having reached that mark in every campaign since 06-07.
