Cristiano Ronaldo set a new Juventus record by scoring in Saturday's Serie A clash with Hellas Verona.

Last week, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner became the first Juve player since David Trezeguet in 2005 to score in nine matches in a row in Italy's top flight.

Ronaldo, who turned 35 this week, has now made Bianconeri history by becoming their first player to find the net in 10 consecutive league games.
