With 10 goals in 14 Serie A games of the 2019-20 season, Ronaldo trails league leader Ciro Immobile by 7 goals going into the winter break.

However, only a brave man would bet against the Portuguese marksman upping his scoring rate in the second half of the season and win his first Capocanonniere title (top-scorer in a Serie A season).

If Ronaldo does so, it would mark the first time a player would have top-scored in 3 of the top 5 leagues in Europe, having already won season top-scoring honours in the EPL with Manchester United and in the LaLiga with Real Madrid.

#3 Emulate Clarence Seedorf's record of winning the Champions League with 3 different clubs

The all-time top-scorer in the Champions League also holds the record for most titles in the Champions League era (1992-93 onwards). Ronaldo won 1 Champions League title for Manchester United in 2007-08 and 4 for Real Madrid in 2013-14, 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18.

A Champions League triumph with Juventus would put Ronaldo in the company of Clarence Seedorf as the only players to win the competition with 3 different clubs (Ajax, Real Madrid, and AC Milan).

It would also make Ronaldo the only player after Francisco Gento (1966) to win the European Cup/Champions League on 6 occasions.
