Juve vs Napoli: Ronaldo scores 760th career goal as The Old Lady win Supercoppa

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 760th career goal during the Italian Supercup Final becoming the top goal scorer of all time.

The Portuguese star had equalled Josef Bican’s record for goals scored for club and country during Juventus’ 3-1 win over Sassuolo on January 10..



He then overtook the former Czech striker in the Italian Supercup Final against Napoli on Wednesday night.

Ronaldo broke the deadlock in the second half making the most of a corner kick from the left and steering the ball inside the net from point-blank range.

A second-half goal from Cristiano Ronaldo lifted Juventus to Supercoppa Italiana glory as The Old Lady edged Napoli, 2-0. A late penalty kick conceded by Juve gave Lorenzo Insigne the chance to equalize, but the Italian star missed wide left as Andrea Pirlo’s team held on. Juve were the sharper team but at times struggled with their passing in the final third, while Dries Mertens got things going for Napol in the second half, winning that penalty kick that Insigne botched. Alvaro Morata added a goal in added time to make it 2-0.

In what was a rematch of the Coppa Italia final that went to penalty kicks, this time Napoli couldn’t convert when it needed to, missing out on a chance to lift another trophy at the expense of the Torino-based club.
