Portuguese forward and reigning world footballer of the year, Cristiano Ronaldo has set yet another record. The 30-year old scored five of Real Madrid’s six goals as the Spanish giants beat Espanyol 6-0 in a La Liga match on Saturday.
Ronaldo’s five goals makes him the first ever Real Madrid player to score five goals per game in two different matches but that’s just a minor record compared to the second.
Those goals also make the former Manchester United man Real Madrid’s top scorer of all time with 230 goals. The previous record which was held by Raul Gonzalez was 228 goals. Ronaldo’s record is way more impressive than that of Raul as the Portuguese achieved his in 204 league games while it took Raul 550 matches before achieving his.
The other goal of Saturday’s game against Espanyol came through Karim Benzema in the 28th minute from a Ronaldo assist.
