With the goal in tow, Ronaldo moves past Josef Bican's previous high-water mark of 759 official career goals to sit atop the all-time list. What's your favourite goal from this Portuguese superstar's almighty repertoire?
However, it notes that some of those goals came in amateur and reserve club matches, as well as non-official global games.
"After that, we came out with the official number of Josef Bican's scored goals".
Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata got La Vecchia Signora's two goals, with the Spaniard killing the game off with the final kick of the game, putting the finishing touches on a swift counterattack and the night itself.
Bican was a prolific goalscorer during his career between the 1930s and 1950s, scoring most of his goals for Slavia Prague between 1938 and 1948.
On January 3, Ronaldo moved himself above three-time Brazil World Cup victor Pele into second on the list following a brace in a 4-1 Serie A home win over Udinese.
These claims prompted a slew of memes questioning Pele's tally.
Brazilian strikers Pele and Romario scored in excess of 1,000 goals during their careers, but those statistics include strikes in amateur, unofficial and friendly matches. Following a career that spanned 24 years, the RSSSF has Romario in third place with 772 goals, behind Bican and Ronaldo.
And to really compound the matter, the bright minds of the History and Statistics Committee of the Czech FA have been delving deep into the archives to reach the conclusion that Bican - who played internationally for Austria and Czechoslovakia - actually scored 821 goals, meaning Ronaldo would still need another 62.
In short, perhaps we'll never know.
