Ronaldo Breaks Another Real Madrid Record

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo was once again the standout player in his side's latest La Liga campaign, and he broke another club record in their final game of the season.

The Portuguese has peaked at the right time this season, scoring 14 goals in his past nine appearances for the club.

He was again on the scoresheet in Real's 2-0 win over Malaga, which secured Los Blancos' first La Liga title since 2012, and their 33rd overall.

The 32-year-old netted 25 goals in 29 La Liga appearances this season, and his strike against Malaga took his overall tally for the campaign to 40 goals.

In doing so, Ronaldo became the first Real Madrid player to score at least 40 goals in seven consecutive campaigns, as RMadrid_Stats on Twitter pointed out.

The four-time Ballon d'Or winner is on 40 strikes for the 2016/17 campaign, and can still add to his tally in the UEFA Champions League final against Juventus.

He scored 53 in 2010/11, 60 in 2011/12, 55 in 2012/13, 51 in 2013/14, a record-breaking 61 in 2014/15 and 51 in 2015/16, only failing to reach the 40-goal mark in his first season (2009/10) with the team.

He netted 33 in that campaign, which also makes him only the second La Liga player to score at least 25 goals in his past eight campaigns in Spain – a record previously only achieved by Ronaldo's longstanding rival Lionel Messi.
