Cristiano Ronaldo is starting to gain a foothold in Italy and has already scored his first scorer record for Juventus.
The Portuguese striker initially struggled to adapt to life with the Old Lady and has scored seven goals in his first ten Serie A appearances – the first player in 61 years.
That performance seemed unlikely at the start of the season when he failed to win in his first three outings and drew against Chievo Verona, Lazio and Parma.

However, a double against Sassoulo brought the 33-year-old back on track and scored five goals in the last five games to score as John Charles did.
The Wales legend, nickname il Gigante Buono Juventus fans – the Gentle Giant – scored seven goals in his first ten games for Juventus after joining Leeds in 1957.
He scored 28 goals in his first season in Serie A, but it feels like Ronaldo will beat that.
He has already outperformed Gonzalo Higuain, Carlos Tevez and Filippo Inzaghi, who scored six goals in their first ten league games for the Turin.
Even club legend Alessandro Del Piero could not score five points, as did Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Ronaldo will undoubtedly look at the big picture and break the record in the single season. This is the Hungarian Ferenc Hirzer, who scored 35 goals in the 1925-26 season.
The five-time winner of the Ballon d & # 39; Or, who has crossed the 40-goal mark in each of his last eight seasons at Real Madrid, will target a larger move that many will still be able to do.
The father of recently capped Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui also says so and said the club stole "50 goals from my son" by selling Ronaldo to the Italian champions.
