Dusan Vlahovic has re-written history in the Italian top-flight. More interestingly, is the fact  that the record puts the 21 year old Serbian player on the same pedestal with Cristiano Ronaldo.

During Fiorentina's entertaining two all draw with Sassuolo on Sunday, the hitman scored his 33rd goal in 2021, equaling the goal tally achieved by Ronaldo during his time with Juventus in 2020. Vlahovic and Ronaldo are the only players to score more goals in a single calendar year in the Italian top-flight since 1960.
