Cristiano Ronaldo beats Lionel Messi to 600 club goals landmark during Juventus clash with Inter Milan

Cristiano Ronaldo scored the 600th club goal of his career on Saturday during Juventus’ 1-1 draw with Inter Milan at the San Siro.

Ronaldo’s clinical finish with his supposedly weaker left foot levelled the game, after Radja Nainggolan had put the hosts ahead with a stunning 25-yard volley.

Juventus won Serie A a couple of weeks ago, their eighth consecutive championship. The point lifted the hosts, who currently sit third in the table, four points ahead of their closest rivals, Roma.

Juventus’ triumphant campaign made Ronaldo the first player to win Serie A, LaLiga and the Premier League, often considered the top three leagues in Europe.

The strike against Inter was the Portuguese forward’s 20th goal in the league this season, placing him second in the Serie A scoring charts behind veteran Sampdoria forward Fabio Quagliarella. This is the tenth year in a row the ex-Real Madrid star has registered at least 20 goals in a league season.

Ronaldo has scored 27 for Juventus in all competitions, which follows 450 for Real Madrid, 118 for Manchester United and five for Sporting CP as a teenager.
