Cristiano Ronaldo Overtakes Pele In All-Time Scoring Chart

Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo has surpassed Pele to become the second-highest goalscorer of all-time.

He struck twice as Juventus beat Udinese 4-1 in Serie A on Sunday, taking his career total of goals for club and country to 758, one more than Pele.

Only Czechoslovakian star Josef Bican, who hit 805 goals in 530 matches between 1931 and 1955 has scored more goals than Ronaldo.

Ronaldo’s brace against Udinese means the 35-year-old has now scored 83 times in just 104 games for Juventus.

He also scored 450 times in only 438 games for Real Madrid between 2009 and 2018, 118 times for Manchester United between 2003 and 2009, and five times for boyhood club Sporting Lisbon as a teenager.

For Portugal, Ronaldo has scored 102 times in 170 games.

He scored the 750th goal of his career on early December 2, 2020, against Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League.

Ronaldo overtaking Pele in the all-time scoring charts comes just weeks after the Brazilian lost his record for the most goals scored for a single team to Argentine star Lionel Messi. In December, Messi scored his 644th goal for Barcelona, overtaking the 643 goals Pele scored for Brazilian side Santos.
