He is indeed a phenomenal player. No doubt he is a great footballer and if there was any way to shut the critics mouth about his goal scoring prowess this season, It will be today when he blessed Espanyol with 5 goals (Hat-trick in 20 mins). Ronaldo never seizes to show how world class he is.
Talking about records, He will be labelled as one of the greatest Galatico to grace Real Madrid because now he has broken Raul’s all time Madrid LALIGA goal record of 228 goals. Not just breaking it, He did it in style.
Raul: 228 goals in 550 matches
Ronaldo: 230 goals in 203 matches
He is indeed a goal monster. After drawing a blank in his side’s opening two games this season, Ronaldo ended a barren spell by breaking the deadlock after seven minutes. Luka Modric’s pass over the top caught out the Espanyol defence, allowing him to draw out goalkeeper Pau Lopez before slotting into the bottom right corner. He provided the assist for the 4th goal to Benzeama before finishing the rest of the game.
What a start for Benitez 11 goals in 3 matches.
