Cristiano Ronaldo hit some magical numbers in Juventus' colours after scoring the two goals that helped them beat Lazio at the Allianz Stadium on Monday, July 20.

Ronaldo, who joined the Italian champions in 2018 also became the first-ever star to score 50 goals and above in England, Spain and Italy.

But all of these are not as important as the team triumph to the former Manchester United superstar.

"Records are always important, but the important thing is that the team wins," Ronaldo told Sky Sport Italia.

"We are a phenomenal team and we showed that again today, although we always want to improve and raise the bar.

"These things are nice, but the Capocannoniere title is a natural process that comes as a consequence of scoring to win games for the team."

Juventus' win over Lazio put them eight points clear with four games remaining in the 2019-20 season.

"We knew it was a very difficult game against a team having a great season, but we knew this was a big opportunity to win, we were at home. We're very happy.

"There are four games to go, we cannot get this wrong and know Serie A is tough. The team is doing well, though."

Legit.ng earlier reported that Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo seems to have ruled out a move away from the Allianz Stadium this summer.

The 35-year-old watched as the Old Lady squandered their 2-0 lead over AC Milan last weekend having scored one of the goals in the game.

However, the outcome of the result was said to have caused rancour between himself and his manager Maurizio Sarri.
