Cristiano Ronaldo reached another landmark as he became the first ever player to score 400 goals in the top five European leagues.

He reached the landmark tally with a simple tap-in during Juve’s 1-1 draw with Genoa on Saturday afternoon.

It’s easy to see why the Portuguese superstar is so prolific – he had eight shots in the opening 35 minutes of the Serie A clash.

Lionel Messi is currently second on the list with 389 goals, all of which have been scored for Barcelona.

Ronaldo’s incredible goalscoring record began 15 years ago in 2003 when he signed for Man United.

The 400 goals have come in 487 appearances at a rate of 0.8 goals per game – Messi’s goals-per-game ratio is slightly better at 0.92.

Spurs legend Jimmy Greaves is third on the list with 366 goals in his 529 appearances from 1957-71.
