Ronaldo Equals Another Personal Record

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo Equals Another Personal Record

By David Kappel - Apr 19, 2018 07:29 AM @kappilinho

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo scored with a back-heel against Athletic Bilbao to rescue his team from losing on Wednesday night, and equalled a new personal goalscoring record in doing so.

The Portuguese scored his side's late 1-1 equaliser to save Zinedine Zidane’s men from defeat on Wednesday.

It was the first time the visitors avoided a loss against Los Blancos at the Santiago Bernabeu in 13 years, after Inaki Williams had put Athletic in front in the first half.

Ronaldo has now scored in 12 successive appearances for only the second time in his career, netting 22 goals in the run that started against Real Sociedad on 10 February.

He scored an impressive 22 goals over this run, and matched his record from 2014 when he scored 20 goals in 12 consecutive appearances between August and November.

The 33-year-old has now scored 24 goals in LaLiga this season, five short of Lionel Messi, who leads the Pichichi race.

Overall, it was Ronaldo's 42nd goal in all competitions of the current campaign – more than any other player in Europe.

Do you think Ronaldo can still catch Messi in the Pichichi race, with just five games remaining? Have your say in the comments section below.

Between Ronaldo and Messi, the jury is still out. I personally would like a comparison on goals scored in play - that is excluding penalties. Both boys are super good, but King Messi takes it for me.

Ask even Buffon how good Ronaldo is. Ask Juventus fans, ask those he helps with charity. Ask his Madrid n National Team mates. He even gave his award to Nani, Us his fans can't forget how he stopped his glory of 50 hatricks by giving Benz a penalty. So I will be mad to listen to his haters. Hahahaha last night he continued to hurt them in the dying minutes. Be ba minyile
