Alessandro Del Piero scored his 178th league goal in Juventus' 4-0 win over Lecce at the weekend.
The Bianconeri have climbed to fifth place in the standings following the comprehensive victory, five points adrift of league leaders Lazio.
Del Piero's latest strike means that he has equalled club legend Giampiero Boniperti's goal tally in Serie A, an effort that he is very proud of.
"He's always said that he is happy for me, and that I should take over him," Del Piero told Sky Italia.
"And I'm sure he's sincere. Anyway, I will call him to know what he thinks.
"I am very pleased with this, but despite these numbers, I am very proud of the team.
"We played a good game, and we are starting to find continuity in our performances."
