Ronaldo sets new La Liga goal record

Cristiano Ronaldo has become the first player to score at least 30 goals in six consecutive La Liga seasons.

The 31-year-old notched his team’s third in their 4-0 win over Eibar on Saturday afternoon, which moved the attacker onto 30 league goals for the 2015-16 campaign.

Barcelona’s Lionel Messi has hit at least 30 in La Liga in four straight seasons, but the Argentine only managed 28 during the 2013-14 season and only has 22 this time around.

Ronaldo, on the other hand, has hit 26, 40, 46, 34, 31, 48 and 30 respectively in his seven seasons with Los Blancos.

Saturday’s victory for Real Madrid moved the capital club above Atletico Madrid into second spot in the La Liga table.
