Real Madrid and Portuguese ace has scored 187 times in 169 league appearances, including seven goals in the week under review.

Ronaldo was absolutely deadly again in Tuesday night’s match, taking his tally to seven goals in 72 hours. In just three days he has streaked miles ahead in the La Liga scoring charts, with a whopping 12 goals in just eight league appearances this season.
With 187 goals in 169 La Liga matches, the former Manchester United man has now surpassed Real legend Carlos Alonso González (better known as ‘Santillana’) to break into the top ten scorers in Spanish top-flight history. In all competitions, Ronaldo now boasts 265 goals in six seasons in Madrid and if he continues to be so prolific, Raúl’s club record of 323 goals won’t last much longer.
