The Portuguese forward has already matched a record that has stood for 6 decades.

He seems to be re-paying Juventus for the massive outlay spent to lure him.

On Saturday, he scored a brace to inspire The Old lady to a brilliant comeback win against Empoli.

That second goal was also his 7th league goal of the season.

The last time a player scored 7 from 10 games was during the 1957/ 1958 season when John Charles achieved it.

When one considers the magnificent strikers Juventus could call on over the years, the milestone is even more impressive.

Gonzalo Higuain, Filippo Inzaghi and Carlos Tevez came closest with 6 goals from their opening 10 appearances.

At this rate, Ronaldo is surely eyeing the golden boot. However, the league’s top scorer is Genoa’s Krzysztof Piatek, with 9 goals.
