Cristiano Ronaldo could become the first player in history to score fifty goals or additional in six consecutive seasons this weekend.
The Real Madrid forward has lacy forty nine times to date this season all told competitions, including thirty three in La Liga and sixteen in the Champions League, leaving him simply one back of the half century mark.
If he doesn’t manage to achieve the deed on Saturday in Real’s final game of the Liga season against Deportivo, he will of course have an additional chance to induce the best goal – within the Champions League final against Atleti on twenty eight could.
Cristiano one away from 50 goals in sixth consecutive season
That said, the Portuguese star has run El Depor’s defence ragged when he’s Janus-faced them in the past. In eight games against the Galician outfit he’s scored 9 goals, while in the same fixture last season he bagged a hat trick as Real ran home 8-2 winners. At the Bernabéu back in January meanwhile, Ronaldo got a brace in a 5-0 victory.
Having overcome the injury that saw him sit out the Champions League first leg at Man town, as well because the games versus Rayo and Real Sociedad, the mercurial striker showed he was back on top kind with his 2 goals against Valencia on Sunday, just in time for the final 2 games of the campaign. What’s more, he’ll get the chance to equal – or higher – his own seventeen goal record within the Champions League once Real jaunt Milan later this month.
The magnitude of Ronaldo’s remarkable goal grading achievements becomes ever additional spectacular once measured up against the world’s alternative high forwards. Unsurprisingly, the only player WHO gets close to the madrid man’s numbers is Messi. The Argentine has scored 326 goals during the last six seasons, bagging additional than fifty in barely 3 of these campaigns (58 in 2014-15, 50 in 2012-13 and seventy three in 2011-12). He’s netted a mere forty one this season therefore way.
Messi’s teammate Luis Suarez – WHO might beat Ronaldo to this year’s Golden Boot – has scored 9 goals quite the Portuguese all told competitions this season. However, this is the primary time in his career he’s managed to pass the 50 goal mark. Lewandowski and Ibrahimovic, on the other hand, have never reached such a powerful tally.
