Despite a difficult start to the season, the Portuguese has proven he has far more left in the tank, having recently gone on a run of scoring in 12 consecutive matches.
Ronaldo, who was in action against Bayern Munich in Real's 2-1 UEFA Champions League first leg semi-final win on Wednesday, has been hailed by Chelsea legend Frank Lampard, who believes not even Messi comes close to the 33-year-old at the moment.
"He’s reinvented his game into his 30s," he said, according to Express.
"He’s become almost an out-and-out goal striker in terms of the way he plays.
"His numbers are incredible, his skill is incredible. Overhead kicks, goals in these massive games, more than anyone in world football.
"It’s difficult to compare anyone, obviously Lionel Messi.
"But in terms of what he’s actually done, in terms of actual numbers, he’s clear at the minute without a doubt."
Ronaldo has scored 24 LaLiga goals in 25 matches this season, while he has hit the back of the net on 15 occasions in the Champions League in just 11 games.
Overall, the forward has scored 42 goals in 39 matches for Real in this campaign, and has contributed with a further seven assists.
