Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 760th goal to become the highest goalscorer in football history while inspiring Juventus to the Italian Super Cup trophy with a 2-0 win over Napoli on Wednesday.

Ronaldo blasted in his 20th goal of the season following a corner on 64 minutes in Reggio Emilia, before Napoli captain Lorenzo Insigne missed a penalty and Alvaro Morata added a second deep into injury time.

Juventus won the annual trophy, played between the league champions and Italian Cup holders, for the ninth time, having finished runners-up last year to Lazio.

A breakdown of Ronaldo's incredible career stats saw him score five goals for Sporting before securing a move to Manchester United where he scored 118 goals. A move to La Liga with Real Madrid followed where Ronaldo scored more than a goal a game to record 450 goals.

After a move to Italy he has so far scored 85 goals for Juventus in just 109 appearances.

The Portuguese captain has also surpassed a century of goals with 102 strikes for Portugal.
