Cristiano Ronaldo belongs to an another era
Cristiano Ronaldo is back – on the off chance that it is even reasonable to say that he cleared out in any case – in genuine style. He scored five of his team’s six goals against Espanyol and played in Benzema for the other. The Portuguese hotshot gave a Real Madrid side heading out to Barcelona without the injured persons James Rodríguez and Danilo. The Portuguese star proved nobody was harping on their nonappearance.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s five-goal pull will stand out forever not only in light of the fact that it was the day when he announced himself Real Madrid’s top scorer ever in the alliance. Three goals in 19 minutes in Cornellà. Five goals in an apparatus for the second time. A hat-trick or better on 21 events. A pull of 231 goals in 203 appearances for Real Madrid in La Liga – joining 104 in 102 games far from the Bernabéu – to overshadowing none other than Raúl as the club’s unsurpassed driving scorer in the competition, taking 347 less matches than the Spanish legend to pile on this count. Three hundred and forty-seven – that is what might as well be called nine seasons. Also, a strike rate of 1.13 goals ratio in a division as aggressive as the Spanish top flight, a normal that not even Lionel Messi can coordinate.
The Portuguese star is likewise the second player in all of Real Madrid’s history who has figured out how to net five far from home in an official match, taking after Gaspar Rubio in 1929. It merits remembering that Rubio’s came in the Regional Madrid Championship, considered an official competition at the time in Spain. Three players have figured out how to score five goals in the same La Liga games two years on the shake: Campanal (1940/41 and 1941/42), Zarra (1941/42 and 1942/43) and now Cristiano Ronaldo (2014/15 and 2015/16).
Just three players have dealt with a five-goal pull far from home in the whole history of the competition: 1959 Merodio (Athletic), 1996 Peternac (Valladolid) and 2015 Ronaldo (Real Madrid). Ronaldo has scored five on two events (Granada and Espanyol), four on three events (Racing, Sevilla and Elche) and another 20 hat-tricks in his entire career.
