Real Madrid`s number 7 scored another hat-trick on Sunday, which was notable for a few reasons. The third goal was of the highest quality and was picked up and replayed all over the world. He came in from the left wing, dropped his shoulder to get a yard of space, then hit a powerful looping shot which two keepers couldn`t have saved. It was a goal that any player would be proud of.
It was also, incidentally goal number four thousand scored by Real Madrid at the Bernabeu stadium. It is fitting that Christiano scored this landmark goal as he is Real Madrid`s talisman at the moment, and his namesake Ronaldo was the scorer of goal 3500.
The first goal was scored by Chus Alonso on DEcember 28th 1947 in a 5-1 win against Athletic.
Christiano`s scoring rate is going from strenghth to strength, indeed he is on course to score over a goal per game if he continues his season as he has. Currently standing at 34 goals from 33 matches, he has improved his rate from last season which saw him notch 53 from 54.
The final statistic that draws attention is that his hat-trick took his total number of goals scored for Real Madrid past the number he registered for Manchester United. Having scored 118 goals in 292 matches for the Red Devils, Ronaldo has now scored a whopping 120 in only 122 games for the Whites, truly amazing
