CR7 all time #6 in EU top scorer

January 6, 2015

Cristiano Ronaldo will have yet another record in his sights after moving up to sixth in the all-time list of top scorers in the big five leagues on Sunday.

Ronaldo’s penalty in Real Madrid’s 2-1 defeat by Valencia at the Mestalla  – which brought an end to their 22-game winning run – was his 28th La Liga goal this season.

And it was also his 287th goal in the Spanish and English leagues combined, which took him level with Gordon Hodgson in sixth position in the table of scorers across Europe’s biggest leagues, which also includes the Bundesliga in Germany, Italy’s Serie A and the French top flight, Ligue 1.
