Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo will clock 36 in about three weeks from now but the forward is not showing any sign of slowing down one bit.

The Portugal international scored a stunning 92nd-minute goal in Juventus' 3-1 win over Sassuolo at the Allianz Stadium last weekend.

Danillo and Aaron Ramsey had also been on target earlier on in the game that saw all goals scored in the second half.

The victory helped Andrea Pirlo's men to close the gap on leaders AC Milan in their pursuit of another Scudetto crown.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid superstar became the only player to score at least 15 goals in each of the last 15 seasons in the top five leagues after his late minute strike against Roberto De Zerbi's men. Ronaldo has reached that mark in every campaign since 06-07.

Legit.ng also reported that Lionel Messi scored a fantastic free-kick during Barcelona's 4-0 thrashing of Granada as they cemented their place in third position on La Liga table.

The set-piece did not only increase La Blaugrana's lead in the game to 3-0, but it also meant that Messi has scored 48 goals from free-kicks for his club.

The six-time Ballon d'Or winner also moved past his closest rival Cristiano Ronaldo in terms of free-kicks scored at club level.
