Ronaldo will surely break this record and advance it. Beware Leo Messi though!
At Real Madrid, certainly in the last couple of years, Ronaldo has refined his game as a pure number 9 with excellent heading ability and finishing skills.
Just 12 goals to go
Thanks to his incredible goal scoring feats for Real Madrid, including the statistic below, Ronaldo now has an incredible opportunity.
In the all-time record of top goal scorers from the top 5 European leagues, Ronaldo has just two men in front of him.
Legendary German striker Gerd Muller has 365 goals. Whilst former Spurs man Jimmy Greaves has 366.
Ronaldo is on 354 goals and needs just 12 more to go equal with Greaves.
Considering the form Ronaldo is in for Real Madrid, it would not be a huge surprise if he did it within 10 La Liga games.
As a result, Ronaldo should break the record in early February.
Meanwhile, Leo Messi has 321 goals in La Liga and whilst Ronaldo may take the record initially, don’t be surprised if the Argentine eventually wins this one as well…
Most goals ever in top 5 leagues Europe:
366 ― Jimmy Greaves
365 ― Gerd Müller
354 ― Cristiano Ronaldo
321 ― LEO MESSI
317 ― Steve Bloomer
