Juventus maintained their record-breaking start to the Serie A season with a 1-0 win over Roma that ensured they will go into the winter break on top of the table.

A 1-1 draw with Genoa in October is the only blot on Juventus's otherwise flawless record, which is the best start that has ever been made to a Serie A season and one that has only been matched in Europe's top five leagues by Barcelona in 2012-13 and Manchester City in 2017-18.

He has not looked back since, and has reached a few milestones this season already.

The Portuguese forward has continued to star since joining Juve, scoring 12 goals in 21 games in all competitions.

City rival Sampdoria's fellow on-fire striker Fabio Quagliarella scored his eighth goal in seven league games as the Genoa club beat Empoli 4-2, taking his tally for this season to 10.
