The Real Madrid Goalscoring Records Cristiano Ronaldo Still Has To Beat
Cristiano Ronaldo and Co faced cross-town neighbours last night as the Portuguese star was on rampant form bagging a hat-trick en route to a 3-nil victory as well as creating more history with the Los Blancos in the process.
The 31-year-old pipped the great Alfredo Di Stefano in scoring the most goals against Atletico Madrid. Ronaldo bagged his 17th, 18th and 19th goals a landmark bettered by none in their rich history.
