Ronaldo broke the record in style by netting a hat-trick in Manchester United's 3-2 win over Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford. It was Ronaldo's 59th career hat-trick but only his second for United.
Ronaldo drew level with Bican's official tally of 805 goals after 12 minutes on Saturday when he arrowed a brilliant long-range strike into the top corner of Hugo Lloris's net.
Spurs drew level courtesy of a Harry Kane penalty before Ronaldo diverted a low Jadon Sancho cross past Lloris to make it 2-1 to United just before half-time.
He had become only the third player aged 37 or over to score more than once in a Premier League game.
