There is a lot of contraversy about this two great players so i won’t be delving into who is the best. However since Ronaldo retains the best player award till when Messi collects it again – I call Ronaldo the current best.
But this piece is in relation to the record Ronaldo keeps catching up to. His goal against Eibar takes him to 234 goals in the Spanish Laliga and makes him the 3rd highest goal scorer in the league level with Hugo Sanchez.
For Ronaldo to be number 2, he only needs 17 more goals to beat Zarra off his 251 goal record. And to beat the number #1, he needs … sorry can’t say because the present #1 is Messi with 290 goals and he is still scoring.
See why i called him the best who will come second to some history?
That being said, Ronaldo’s penalty took him to 48 successful Liga spot-kicks, 11 more than anyone else in the top five European leagues in the last 15 years. He is Ronaldo, He has a book of records of his own.
