Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has extended his lead at the top of the Golden Boot race as far as the Italian football top flight is concerned this season. The Portuguese international hit two goals in the win over Udinese at the weekend to extend his lead over nearest challenger RomeluLukaku as the race to win the Golden Boot starts to gather pace in the Italian football top flight this term. Cristiano Ronaldo has made a big impact on Italian football since his move from Real Madrid to Juventus in the summer of 2018 and he further highlighted his influence in Italian football with a brace during the 4-1 victory at home to Udinese as his Juventus side bounced back from the disappointing maiden league defeat of the season suffered at the hands of Fiorentina last year.

Cristiano Ronaldo gave Juventus a first half lead on the half hour mark. Italian international Federico Chiesa added a second goal four minutes into the second half before Ronaldo took the game beyond the reach of Udinese with the third Juventus goal on 70 minutes. Dutchman Marvin Zeegelaar scored the lone Udinese goal on 90 minutes and there was still time for Juventus to score a fourth goal through Paolo Dybala.

The brace from Cristiano Ronaldo took him to 14 league goals at the top of the scoring charts and ahead of Inter Milan striker RomeluLukaku. The Portuguese player was able to break the record of the great Pele with those two goals. The brace took Ronaldo to 758 goals as he was able to surpass the record of 757 career goals set by Pele many years ago. Inter Milan hitman RomeluLukaku scored one of the goals as the Nerazzuri came from a goal down to beat Crotone 6-2 at home. He took his league tally to 12 goals with his goal. Lukaku was overshadowed by his strike partner Lautaro Martinez who netted a hattrick during the game. The Argentine now has nine league goals this season.
