Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo has equalled Josef Bican as top goalscorer in football history after getting among the goals in Juventus’ 3-1 home win against Sassuolo on Sunday. Ronaldo scored his 22nd goal for club and country this season as Juventus moved up to fourth after leaving it late to see off Sassuolo. As Ronaldo sealed the victory on Sunday,he netted his 759th goal for both club and country – a record now only matched by Bican, the Austrian-Czech striker who played between 1931 and 1955. Aaron Ramsey and Danilo were also on the scoresheet for Juventus as they followed up their 3-1 victory at AC Milan in style. Andrea Pirlo’s side currently sit in fourth in Serie A, just a point behind Roma in third who have played a match more. The visitors, who have been one of European football’s surprise packages this season, were reduced to 10 men in first-half stoppage time when former West Ham midfielder Pedro Obiang fouled Federico Chiesa. Danilo then put Andrea Pirlo’s men ahead five minutes after the restart, hammering a 30-yard thunderbolt into the bottom right-hand corner of Andrea Consigli’s goal, with the flying Italian nowhere near it. The hosts couldn’t press home their one-man advantage though and were pegged back eight minutes later, when Gregoire Defrel pushed Hamed Traore’s pass between Juve centre backs Merih Demiral and Leonardo Bonucci with his left foot, before producing a sliding right-foot finish to beat Wojciech Szczesny. Sassuolo looked like upsetting the odds once again this term and rode their luck when Chiesa struck a post, but Aaron Ramsey came to his side’s rescue, turning in Gianluca Frabotta’s cross to make it 2-1. Ronaldo then added the third after calmly controlling a long ball over the top by Danilo before charging into the penalty area and slotting past Consigli.
