Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival forced my exit from Juventus: Gonzalo Higuain

The Portugal superstar, 33, reached the tally as he scored in the against Genoa in the 1 - 1 on Saturday.

Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score 400 goals across Europe's top five leagues as he netted the opener in Juventus' home Serie A draw with Genoa on Saturday.

Next up, Manchester United welcome back Cristiano Ronaldo at Old Trafford as they host Juventus in their third Champions league group fixture.

Ronaldo's career has seen him plunder goals with Manchester United and Real Madrid before his move to Italy in July, and his prolific form has continued.

The Portugal captain tapped in, after Joao Cancelo's shot was blocked, having earlier hit the post with a header.


Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring in the 18th minute but the reigning Serie A champions were pegged back in the second half.

At one stage, Ronaldo looked to be in danger of missing the game entirely after he was shown a red card in Juve's Champions League opener against Valencia for pulling Jeison Murillo's hair, but in the end he was only given a one-match ban.

In an attempt to stifle Genoa as they scented an equaliser Allegri replaced Juan Cuadrado with Douglas Costa, the Brazilian winger making his first appearance since a four-game ban for spitting.

The visitors were eventually rewarded in the 67th minute when Daniel Bessa caught the Juve defence napping and nodded home from close range.

Despite dominating the game, Napoli had to wait until the last 10 minutes to wrap up the points thanks to a Dries Mertens penalty and a strike from Croatian midfielder Marko Rog.
