TURIN – Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 600th league game with his 20th Serie A goal of the season as Juventus beat Spezia 3-0 on Tuesday to move within three points of second-placed AC Milan.
The Portuguese guided his side’s third goal late after Alvaro Morata and Federico Chiesa struck earlier in the second half to put Andrea Pirlo’s side in a dominant position.
Ronaldo, who also hit the post with an effort in the first half, becomes the first player to score at least 20 goals in each of the past 12 seasons in Europe’s top five leagues.
The victory leaves Juve third with 49 points in 24 games behind Milan out of 52 and leaders Inter with 56, both in action this week against Udinese and Parma respectively.
