Cristiano Ronaldo breaks yet another record

Cristiano Ronaldo breaks yet another record


Every time he plays, it appears that Cristiano Ronaldo breaks some sort of record.

The fit again striker scored two sensational goals against Osasuna on Saturday evening to help his side to a 4-0 win and keep the pressure up on Atletico de Madrid at the top of La Liga.

Both the goals were scored from outside the area, taking the Portugal international to 29 goals scored outside the box in all competitions this season. That number surpasses the 28 goals from outside the area scored by Leo Messi for Barcelona in the 2009/10 season.

The record takes into account the top five leagues across Europe – La Liga, the Premier League, the Bundesliga, Seria A, and Ligue 1.

Ronaldo has scored 30 goals in 28 league games this season, and 14 goals in the Champions League. Should he score another in European football’s most elite club competition, he’ll have the record for the most number of goals scored in the Champions League in a single campaign. Currently, he shares that record with Messi.

Los Blancos head to the Allianz Arena on Tuesday night holding a 1-0 lead as they look to qualify for their first Champions League final in 12 years. Karim Benzema scored the only goal of the game in what was Ronaldo’s comeback game following a hamstring injury.



  1. Ronaldo should be having 30 goals and not 29, he had 28 goals previously and the 2 goals against osasuna made it 30 goals, pls this writer should learn to check his facts before publishing and stop misleading the public.

    • You should probably read what the article is about before commenting on whether the writer is checking their facts. Ronaldo has scored 29 goals from outside of the area in all competitions this season. If you are referring to league goals scored this season, then yes, that’s 30. But I wasn’t writing about that was I?

  2. Ronaldo is the best player I’ve ever seen (and yes I saw Zidane, El Fenomeno, and Thierry Henry). Today he just broke the record for most UCL goals in a single campaign w/ 16 goals (a brace against Bayern IN Munich). #Legend

  3. the greatest footballer of all time
    iniesta + xavi + barca(tiki taka)= messi

    so cr7 is much greater player than messi
    the king Cristiano ronaldo.
    if he had only iniesta on his side he could score 200 goals in a season hala madrid hala cr7

  4. Am I the only one who was disgusted at Ronaldo’s first goal celebration? How is it that Real Madrid fans can stand this guy and not Mourinho. Wonder what Bale and the rest of the teammates must be thinking. Like somebody said, he is The Greatest ever player admiring his own records. The greatest footballer ? Lots of them above this sprinter.
