Ronaldo And Real Madrid Set New Records
Cristiano Ronaldo and records are increasingly becoming synonymous same for La Liga title-chasing Real Madrid who over the weekend secured a 4-1 win over Sevilla.
Real Madrid have now scored in 62 consecutive games. This scoring streak beats Bayern Munich's record of 61 between the 2012/13 and 2013/14 campaigns.
The madridistas' stunning scoring sequence began on 30 April 2016 (in a 1-0 away win at Real Sociedad).
Over a year on from that fixture, the Whites have racked up 171 goals in their 62 outings (2.75 goals per game).
The goals scored by Zinedine Zidane's side have come across five different competitions: LaLiga (106), the European Cup (34), the Copa del Rey (22), the Club World Cup (six) and the UEFA Super Cup (three).
Also, Ronaldo reached another landmark in his Real Madrid career as he scored his 400th and 401st goal for the club.
While the win was important for Real's La Liga aspirations, it was Ronaldo’s latest feat that took the limelight yet again, especially the second goal, which was hit with his left foot on first contact and sailed past the Sevilla goalkeeper.
Real Madrid are still second on the table behind rivals Barcelona, who won 4-1 at Las Palmas, but still level on points.
However, Barca have just one game left, while Real have two and will emerge champions if they get four point from those two games.
