Ronaldo Into Fourth In La Liga All-Time Ranking

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has moved into fourth position in La Liga’s all-time goalscoring charts.

The Portuguese superstar scored an incredible five goals against Espanyol over the weekend, which saw him becoming Real’s all-time top scorer in the Spanish league.

As a result, Ronaldo jumped up a further two places in the league’s all-time scoring ranking, surpassing two Los Blancos legends.

He overtook Alfredo Di Stefano on 227 goals as well as previous club record scorer Raul on 228 goals, and now sits on 230 strikes.

The 30-year-old is only four goals behind Hugo Sanchez, who scored 234 goals for Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid and Rayo Vallecano.

Ronaldo also has former Spanish all-time scorer Telmo Zarra in sight and only needs 21 more strikes to overtake him. Messi is still atop of the ranking and 57 goals ahead of his eternal rival. 

Ronaldo, though, equalled Messi’s record of scoring 32 hat-tricks in official matches for Spanish clubs.

In addition, the Portuguese joined Messi as only the second player to have scored 100 or more away goals. The Argentine needed 127 games to reach this milestone, while Ronaldo did it in 103 matches.
