Cristiano makes 20 fastest

November 25, 2014

Virtually every goal that Cristiano Ronaldo scores for Real Madrid takes him to some record or another.

The two goals which he scored against Eibar were no different, putting him on a total of 20 goals in the first 12 games of the campaign – something no-one else has managed before.

It has taken 84 years of competition for a player to net 20 times in just 12 games. Before now, the two players who had managed to equal or exceed 20 goals in the fewest games were Pruden, of Atlético de Madrid, who scored 22 goals in 13 games in 1940/41, and Bata, for Athletic, who scored 21 goals in the same number of games 10 years prior.

Real Madrid’s Portuguese star has knocked one game off the record held by these two La Liga legends. At this rate, he will finish the season with 63 goals – 13 more than Messi’s record of 50 in the Pichichi Trophy.

Furthermore, Cristiano Ronaldo continues to add victims to his personal hit list. His two goals against Eibar mean that he can still boast of having found the back of the net against every single team that he has played against in the Spanish top flight. A total of 29 teams have suffered at the hands of the man on course to become the top goalscorer in Real Madrid’s La Liga history.
