Prior to Wednesday night, only Omar Sivori and Roberto Baggio had required less than five seasons to reach the 100-goal mark.
But Ronaldo achieved the feat near the end of his third season with the club, having joined from Real Madrid ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.
In addition, Ronaldo became the first player in history to tally more than 100 goals with three different clubs and his national team, having done so with Manchester United and Madrid as well as Portugal.

Ronaldo helped Juve to Serie A titles in his first two seasons with the club, but he’s failed to lead them to Champions League glory and this season’s league campaign sees Juve battling to simply earn a top-four spot.
The chance for featuring in the Champions League next season is still not over for Juventus.
