Cristiano Ronaldo equals Real Madrid legend’s record

The Portuguese forward has drawn level with Alfredo Di Stefano in the club’s goalscoring charts, netting his 307th strike last night.

It was a frustrating night for Real Madrid against Juventus in Turin last night, with the Bianconeri stifling the Spaniards and exacting a 2-1 defeat on Carlo Ancelotti’s men.

The current European champions are led by attacking talisman Cristiano Ronaldo, who had a quiet night put still managed to head home an invaluable away goal.

The strike took Ronaldo above Lionel Messi in the all-time goalscoring list for the Champions League, with the Portuguese having scored an incredible 75 times in Europe’s top tournament.

However, the goal at the Juventus Stadium also brought the former Manchester United attacker one step closer to becoming Real Madrid’s all-time top goalscorer.

The strike was Ronaldo’s 307th in all competitions for Madrid, helping him to equal legend Alfredo De Stefano’s tally as the historic club’s joint second highest scorer.

The current Ballon d’Or holder needs a further 16 strikes to become Los Blancos’ all-time scorer and equal the tally of 323 set by Raul.

Although this may not be essential in some players minds, given that Messi is Barceona’s all-time top scorer, Ronaldo will want to do likewise at the Santiago Bernabeu.
