Cristiano Ronaldo broke all records when it comes to squaring in the Spanish league after scoring 40 goals this season (and I had a free bet on it too! :) ) After Ronaldo scored his 40th goal for the season, the race was on. Messi, World Player of the Year, would compete with Ronaldo to top the record. Unfortunately for Messi, it would be Ronaldo who would win the personal duel.

During Real Madrid’s last four games, Ronald scored an astounding 11 goals, several of which were scored against Messia’s Almeria. When considering all leagues, Ronaldo Scored 53 goals, beating out Messi by just one.

“The reason I’ve scored so many goals is thanks to my team-mates,” says Ronaldo. “I’m very grateful.”
