The Swede had previously stood alone in terms of how prolific he had been in multiple major leagues, but has now been joined by the Argentine

Gonzalo Higuain joined a club of just two players on Saturday when he netted for Juventus against AC Milan.

In scoring his 100th goal in Serie A, the Argentine striker became just one of a couple of players to net 100 times in two of Europe’s top five leagues during the 21st century. He had previously struck 107 times during his seven-year run with Real Madrid in La Liga.

5/2 for Udinese and Atalanta to draw

It has taken the 29-year-old only five campaigns to reach triple figures in Serie A, and in doing so he mirrors the achievement of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who also reached the 100-goal milestone in both Serie A and Ligue 1.

The Swede, who is battling back from a long-term knee ligament injury with Manchester United, has 122 goals in the Italian top-flight to his credit after spells at Juventus, Inter and AC Milan, while he scored 113 times in Ligue 1 with Paris Saint-Germain.

Incidentally, Edinson Cavani is likely to make this a group of three in the weeks ahead, as the Uruguay international forward needs to score only one more goal with PSG to notch up his century in France’s top flight, having scored 112 in Serie A.
