Umpteenth record broken by CR7

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 +20k

The record breaker strikes again. Against Cagliari, Cristiano Ronaldo started the year becoming the first Portuguese player in history to score a hat-trick in a Serie A game.

All eyes were on Ibra, but Ronaldo wanted his share of the spotlight as well. He netted a hat-trick to break yet another record. 

Cristiano led the triumph against Cagliari and broke a new record: no Portuguese player had managed to get a hat-trick in a match. It had to be him who was the first to do it. 

It was also his first Serie A hat-trick for Juventus; he had already got one against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League in probably his best ever night since moving to Turin

If that was not enough, he also assisted Higuain so he had a part to play in all four goals

We can definitely say that Ronaldo took the match ball home with him and and also got himself in the headlines in Portugal where news of what he did versus Cagliari quickly spread. 

He is less than a month away from turning 35 and Cristiano has upped his game recently: he has scored 13 goals in his last 10 competitive fixtures including in each of his last five Serie A matches. 

It is no surprise Juventus praised their star on social media.
