Real Madrid forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has scored 34 goals in 32 matches this season, and surpassed his previous best number of goals at the same stage from 2010-11 and 2012-13 by one goal.
The brace in the Copa del Rey semi-final against Atletico Madrid was the forward’s goal number 33 and 34 in all competitions.
Last season and in the 2010-11 season, he had scored 33 goals in the same number of matches, while in 2011-12 he had scored 31.
Despite being banned for two more La Liga games, the 2013 FIFA Ballon d’Or winner can still break his personal best of 60 goals, which he achieved in the 2011-12 season.
At the moment, Ronaldo is leading the La Liga goal-scoring ranking with 22 goals, has recently broken a new Champions League record with nine group stage goals and his three Copa del Rey goals helped the Los Blancos to book their ticket in the final against Barcelona.
The 29-year-old recently scored his 400th career goal for club and country, and has also moved into fourth in Real Madrid’s all-time goal scoring charts with 168 La Liga goals.
Only Santillana on 186 goals, Alfredo Di Stefano on 216 and Raul on 228 are still ahead of him.
