With a plethora of records waiting to be broken Juventus and Portugal striker Cristiano Ronaldo, viewed as one of the all-time greats in football, would be hoping for a remarkable 2020.

 

Here are all the records he can break this year.

  • Ronaldo currently has 99 international goals to his name, and with the Euro Cup slated to be played this year, Ronaldo would look to go past 109 goals of Iran's Ali Daei, making him the top international scorer of all time, Goal.com reported.

 

  • He is currently joint-fourth highest scorer in the Serie A with 10 goals and if he manages to reach the top this year, he will become the first player in history to have been top goal-scorer in the English (Premier League), Spanish (La Liga) and Italian (Serie A) leagues.

 

  • With Real Madrid, the 34-year-old had defeated Liverpool in the 2018 Champions League final and if he manages to win the tournament with Juventus this year, he will equal Francisco Gento's (Real Madrid) record for winning the tournament six times.

 

  • Along with Lionel Messi, he has scored eight hat-tricks in the Champions League and he would be hoping to extend his lead over his arch rival from Barcelona.

 

  • Last year, Lionel Messi pipped Ronaldo to win the Ballon d'Or. With this, the Argentine won the award for the sixth time. Ronaldo has won the biggest prize in football five times and would want to equal Messi’s tally.
