Ronaldo Silences Critics

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has silenced his critics following a sublime performance against Espanyol on Staurday. The Portuguese broke Los Blancos’ all-time record for most La Liga goals in history and equalled three further milestones with his five-goal show.

Following his strikes in the 6-0 thrashing of Espanyol on Saturday, Ronaldo has now scored 230 league goals in just 203 games for Real.

He broke Raul’s club record of 228 La Liga goals and now has his name cemented in the club’s history books.

Overall, the Portuguese superstar sits on 318 goals in 303 games for Los Blancos, just five strikes short of Raul’s all-time record in all competitions for the club.

The 30-year-old, who failed to score in his side’s first two league games this campaign, became only the third player to score five goals in a single game in two consecutive La Liga seasons.

Guillermo Campanal and Telmo Zarra were the other two players to reach this record, the former back in 1940/41 and 41/42, and the latter in 41/42 and 42/43.

Only three players have scored five goals away from home in La Liga history – Athletic Bilbao’s Armando Merodio in 1959, Valladolid’s Alen Peternac in 1996, and now Ronaldo.

In addition, Ronaldo became Real’s second player to score five goals away from home in an official match after Gaspar Rubio did so in the Regional Madrid Championship (considered an official tournament at the time) in 1929.
