Real Madrid send classy CR7 tweet after Inter win

Real Madrid send classy tweet to Cristiano after historic brace in Coppa Italia win vs Inter

February 3, 2021 By Ali M.
The Portuguese icon took his goalscoring tally to 763 thanks to his two-goal haul against the Nerazzurri.

On Tuesday, Cristiano Ronaldo enjoyed a incredible match in the Coppa Italia clash with Inter Milan. The Bianconeri enjoyed a 2-1 victory over the Nerazzurri in their first-leg encounter, with their Portuguese superstar scoring both goals, a performance dubbed "historic" by many.

Why is that, you might ask? While the mainstream belief is that the five-time Ballon d'Or winner became football's all-time leading scorer in the 2-0 win over Napoli in the Supercoppa Italiana, others disagree. Marca fall into the latter category, with the Spanish publication arguing that Josef Bican's record stood at 762 goals, not 759, meaning Ronaldo only surpassed the Austrian-Czech icon on Tuesday.

The first of his two strikes came via a penalty, with the 35-year-old clinically dispatching the 26th-minute spot kick to bring his side level after going 1-0 down inside 10 minutes. Nine minutes later, the Old Lady were 2-1 up as the former Real Madrid sensation capitalized on poor defending and netted his second of the night, and his 763rd goal of his career.

As a result, many took this opportunity to hail Cristiano and hailing his ground-breaking career. Real Madrid were one of them, with Ronaldo's former club issuing a classy congratulatory tweet to commemorate this landmark. Check out their statement in the tweet below.

Andrea Pirlo's side now head into the second leg of their semi-final clash with a huge advantage, having won 2-1 at the San Siro. The Bianconeri will host Antonio Conte's men next week knowing that a second piece of silverware is within reach.
