Cristiano Ronaldo scored Juventus’ 5,000th Serie A goal on Saturday – making the reigning champions the first team to reach the landmark.
Ronaldo scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot after 70 minutes to sink Torino in the Derby della Mole.
Juve’s 4,000th goal in the competition came from former Italy striker Marco Di Vaio in 2003, 19 years on from Massimo Briaschi scoring number 3,000.
Carlo Parola and Gianni Rossi netted goals 1,000 and 2,000 in 1948 and 1962 respectively.
