Cristiano Ronaldo’s total goals must increase by four goals in next three games or he will see his incredible seven-year streak ended.
The Juventus striker has scored 50 goals or more for club and country every year since 2011.
But Ronaldo has only managed to score 46 times since the start of 2018 for Real Madrid, Juventus and Portugal.
To keep his record running, he will have to be in phenomenal form in the upcoming games against Roma, Atalanta and Sampdoria.
For club and country since the start of the year, he has scored seven penalties and three hat-tricks.
Lionel Messi and Gerd Muller are the only others players to have scored above 50 goals for two consecutive years or more.
Fellow five-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi has already reached the milestone with 50 strikes in 2018, including four hat-tricks.
Following his £88million switch from Real Madrid, Ronaldo failed to find the net in his first three Serie A games.
But he has now scored 12 goals in all competitions for Juventus this season and he looks on track to extend his streak.
His goal opportunities were limited when he decided to take some time away from international duty after the World Cup.
