Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 700th career goal in Portugal's Euro 2020 qualifier 2-1 defeat to Ukraine earlier this week.

The 34-year-old became the sixth all time highest goals scorer of all time - with about thirty five more goals to equal German legend Gerd Müller's achievement.

Meanwhile, on return to club football this weekend, the Italian League champions gifted Ronaldo a jersey with number of goals he has scored before the game.

But the unstoppable striker repaid their kind gesture with another stunning goal in Juve's 2-1 win over Bologna in the 19th minute of their encounter.

Danilo Larangeira equalised for the visitors in the 26th minute before Miralem Pjanic sealed the win for Maurizio Sarri's men to maintain their leadership on the table.

Apart from Muller, who has 735 goals, Ronaldo is still chasing the likes of Ferenc Puskás (746), Pelé (767), Romário (772) and Josef Bican (805) to become the all time leading goals scorer.

The former Manchester United striker has less than 40 goals for Juve already, compared to the 450 for Real Madrid during his nine year reign at the club.

His goal against Bologna at the Allianz Stadium took his tally to five goals and five assist in all competitions this campaign.

Meanwhile, the Portuguese forward must look over his shoulder as Barcelona star Lionel Messi is just about 30 goals behind his arch rival, having scored a total of 672 goals in his career.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo recently scored his 700th career goal in Portugal's 2-1 defeat to Ukraine in 2020 Euro qualifiers.

His achievements over the years have earned him a legendary status in the sports, having become the most successful player in the history of Champions League.

The 34-year-old became sixth player to reach the milestone after the likes of Gerd Muller (735 goals), Ferenc Puskás (746), Pelé (767), Romário (772) and Josef Bican (805).
