Juventus veteran Alessandro Del Piero reached yet another milestone in his illustrious career as he equalled Giampiero Boniperti’s Serie A goal-scoring record of 178 goals.

Bianconeri legend Boniperti had been the club’s highest league goal-scorer until ‘Il Pinturicchio’ made his way onto the pitch as a second half substitute and bagged the fourth and final goal of Juve’s emphatic victory over Lecce.

Speaking to Mediaset Premium, the 35-year old expressed his delight over the achievement.

"I am pleased to have reached the record of an exceptional person and to have contributed to the victory." he explained.

"Earning the applause is nice, every game is difficult, our sacrifices have been rewarded this Sunday. Let's enjoy the result and then tomorrow we'll think about the next match."

Juve now sit in fifth place following their victory, five points off league leaders Lazio.
