Portugese Forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, netted his 300th goal for Real Madrid against Rayo Vallecano, to become the third player in the club’s history to reach the landmark alongside Alfredo Di Stefano and Raul.
Ronaldo scored in the 68th minute to move Madrid within four points of their great rivals Barcelona.
In what seem to be a frustrating night for the Galacticos, Ronaldo’s strike was accompanied by a second from James Rodriguez against Rayo – the Colombia international finding the bottom-left corner with a strike that effectively killed the game.
The former Manchester United player has now joined the 300 club in just 288 appearances; scored 99 goals under manager Carlo Ancelotti in just 89 games, following his five against Granada three days ago. He is now just eight goals shy of Di Stefano’s record of 308 in 396 outings, and 23 behind Raul’s 323 in 741.
