Meanwhile, he scored 42 and above every other season at Madrid. Recording his best being a striking history of 61 goals in 2014-15.
Also, he got 28 in 43 matches for Juventus in his first campaign in Serie A. Although, he had a tough season-start with his injury, yet reaches his usual tally.
The former United forward keeps the 10-goal streak since his days at Old Trafford, then to Real Madrid and now Juventus. As his brace also let Juve have three first-half goals since February 2018.
He achieves this feat in three different clubs across three territories (Premier League, Laliga, and Serie A). He is truly a great player.
