Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, who has a history of scoring important goals for his club, has now equalled an incredible goalscoring record of Lionel Messi's.

The 30-year-old was on the score sheet once again in Real's 5-2 thumping of Osasuna on the weekend. It was his first La Liga goal of the current campaign, and marked the 13th consecutive season in which the Spaniard has found the back of the net.

Only Messi equals such an impressive scoring streak in Spain, having scored his first La Liga goal in 2004/05 and already opened his account this season, against Real Betis.

Ramos netted his first La Liga goal back in September 2004, scoring from a free-kick for Sevilla against Real Sociedad, and has scored at least one league goal every season since.

Overall, the Los Blancos defender has scored 43 goals in 340 Spanish top-flight matches since joining Real from Sevilla, and also netted two for the latter in the early stages of his career.

With his goal, Ramos also equalled the La Liga record for the defender who has scored in the most consecutive seasons, set by Aitor Larrazabal as well as Real's record-scoring defender Juanito, who netted in 12 consecutive campaigns for the club, as pointed out by AS.

His goal against Osasuna was his second this season, after he netted the late equaliser in the UEFA Super Cup final against Sevilla – his third goal in a European cup final.

The best current scoring streak is held by Roma legend Francesco Totti, who scored in his 23rd consecutive season on the weekend.
