Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been in great form over the past couple of weeks, has equalled another record held by longstanding rival Lionel Messi.
The Portuguese netted his 40th goal of the season in his side's 2-0 win over Roma in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.
Ronaldo has now managed to score at least 40 goals in all competitions in each of his last six seasons with Los Blancos – a record set by Messi last campaign.
In 2014/15, the Los Blancos talisman set a personal record of 61 goals, after hitting 51 (2013/14), 55 (2012/13), 60 (2011/12) and 53 (2010/11) in the previous four campaigns.
The 31-year-old only needed 36 games to achieve 40 strikes this season, while Messi currently sits on 35 goals in 35 appearances in all competitions.
The Argentine can still extend his own record, having previously achieved tallies of 58 (2014/15), 41 (2013/14), 60 (2012/13), a record-breaking 73 (2011/12), 53 (2010/11) and 47 (2009/10) in the past six campaigns.
Overall, Ronaldo has scored 353 goals in 336 matches since arriving in Spain, while Messi has netted 367 in 356 appearances since his rival joined Real Madrid.
