Serie A

12 Records Was Set In The Just Concluded Italian Serie-A. Ronaldo's Record Is At No 2, 8, and 11.

The 2019/20 Italian Serie A League season came to a climax on 2nd August 2020. Although it looked like the season was not going to be completed when the Coronavirus Pandemic struck through the world like lightening, resulting in the temporary storage of various football leagues in Europe and the World. Italy at some point was the epic center of the pandemic with many losing their lives. For some countries like the Netherlands and France, the virus caused an abrupt end to their football league season, while for others like Spain, Italy, Germany, and England, they were able to re-start the season.

Juventus emerged champions, while Brescia, Spal, and Lecce were relegated. For Inter Milan, a win in their last game of the season secured Champions League football for the 2020/21 season, and a second(2nd) place finish although they threatened to usurp Juventus at various points in the season but for inconsistency. Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to Ac. Milan to lead them back to European competition(if they win their Europa league qualification ties)finishing 6th while Napoli who were less convincing in the league shocked Juventus in the Coppa Italia final to lift the trophy which guaranteed them a place in Europe next season despite finishing below the top 6 in the league.

In the course of the 2019/20 season, several records were set by players, clubs, and managers. Let's look at them

1. Juventus 9th Consecutive League Win And 36th Overall.

Juventus extended their record for the most consecutive Serie A title win. The 2019/20 season was the 9th time they won the league consecutively and their 36th overall.

2. Ronaldo's 11 Consecutive Scoring Run

Ronaldo opened the scoring in Juventus 2-1 win over Spal which was the 11th consecutive time he has scored in Serie A. No other player has scored in more than 11th consecutive matches. The other two players who share the record with Ronaldo are Gabriel Batistuta (1994/95) and Fabio Quagliarella (2018/19). Ronaldo could have owned the record outrightly but he failed to score in the next game when Juventus won 2-0 against Inter Milan.
