Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has smashed yet another record by becoming the leading goal-scorer in Europe’s top-five leagues.
Ronaldo, 32, broke Jimmy Greaves’ record of 366 strikes by scoring an emphatic brace in the 4-1 victory over Celta de Vigo on Wednesday night.
Urgency was displayed from the off as Ronaldo officially became the greatest goal-scorer in European league football after just 10 minutes.
It was typically efficient and emphatic from Ronaldo; one touch to control, one to shift and another to finish, blasting a piledriver with his left foot through the legs of Gustavo Cabral and into the top corner of Sergio Alvarez’s goal.
His second was once again finished with his ‘weaker’ foot into the near corner after a perfectly weighted pass from Isco, doubling Real Madrid’s lead just two minutes into the second half.
Milestones are being broken left, right and centre for the Portuguese international, who recorded his 400th goal for Real Madrid in last weekend’s win over Sevilla.
Wherever Ronaldo’s name is found, Lionel Messi’s is lurking somewhere, and such is the case here once again. The Argentine magician trails Ronaldo’s record closely, sitting on 347 league goals since debuting for Barcelona in 2004.
