Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has now surpassed football legend Pele to climb second in the all-time goal-scoring charts.
Ronaldo secured a brace for Juventus against Udinese to win the game for Andrea Pirlo’s men at the Allianz Stadium.
His brace enabled him to net his 758th goal in his sterling career and moved him above the Brazilian legend Pele.
Josef Bican has scored more goals than any other player in history with 805 goals in 530 matches between 1931 and 1955.
Ronaldo, who scored an incredible 450 of his goals during his illustrious nine years at Real Madrid, notched up his landmark 700th career goal last year.
Jorge Mendes said at the time that his superstar client will surpass Pele’s goalscoring record at Juventus.

The 54-year-old Portuguese football agent told Sky Sports: “His numbers don’t lie and light up the overwhelming way Cristiano Ronaldo shatters records, which elevate him to the category of the best player in the history of football, with a big difference compared to the second [best] for all he achieved with the different clubs he represented, whether in England, Spain or now in Italy and also with the Portuguese national team.”
He added: “Cristiano has reached the remarkable milestone of 700 goals. But I have no doubt that he’ll surpass Pele as the best scorer in football history, and he’ll do it with Juventus.”
