Cristiano Ronaldo found the back of the net twice helping Juventus to a 2-2 draw against very determined AS Roma in their second Serie A fixture of the season.

A towering header and a duly converted penalty kick helped the Portuguese striker complete his brace, saving 10-man Juventus from defeat.

The brace took the 35-year-old’s tally for the 2020/21 campaign to three goals, while he has now netted an incredible 450 times across Europe’s top leagues.

Ronaldo is now the first ever footballer in history to reach the 450-goal milestone, adding yet another record to his long list.

Cristiano Ronaldo sets new record in 2020 which Messi and Neymar stats combined can't even match

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid striker has scored 84 goals in the Premier League, 311 times in LaLiga and now 55 in Serie A.

Messi, meanwhile, sits on 445 goals in La Liga, just five short of Ronaldo’s new record.

Also, Luis Suarez scored two beautiful goals on his debut for Atletico Madrid helping Diego Simeone’s men to a 6-1 thrashing of Granada in their match-day 2 of the La Liga.

The former Barcelona player who was declared surplus at Camp Nou joined Atletico on a two-year deal and he wasted no time in hitting the ground running.

Suarez came on as a substitute in the 70th minute replacing Diego Costa with the scoreline at 3-0 in favour of the Rojiblancos.

And with just two minutes of his introduction, the 33-year-old provided an assist for Marcos Llorente with a defense splitting pass before the latter poked home to make it 4-0.

He stole the remainder of the show he powered home a sensational header as well as another goal to score a brace on his debut for his new club.

The goals make him become the first player to score and assist on his LaLiga debut for Atlético Madrid in the 21st century and also the first debutant to score a brace for the Red-And-Whites.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Ronald Koeman has exonerated himself from Luis Suarez's departure from Barcelona earlier this month.

The 33-year-old attacker sealed a two-year move to Atletico Madrid having spent six years at the Nou Camp.

Though the Dutchman was blamed by many for sacking the Uruguay international from his team, he has now come forward to implicate the Barca board in the deal.
