Cristiano Ronaldo has started 2013 strongly. In seven games has scored 10 goals (1.4 per game). He adds 21 goals in the Spanish League and a total of 33 in all competitions. As data to highlight, it should be noted that he has reached the 100 goals mark at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium playing 87 games. With the three goals scored against Getafe the Portuguese is just one behind Gento as the sixth leading scorer in the history of Real Madrid. Cristiano has already scored 180 goals in 176 games. Amazing.
It was his second hat-trick of the season and tied with Puskas to have scored 19 times three or more goals in a match. Cristiano is the third player to achieve this record in club history. Di Stefano was the first. The 'Saeta Rubia' (blonde arrow) did it 31 times.
On Sunday, the audience at the Bernabeu awarded him a standing ovation because of his new feat. It is obvious that the fans have found an idol in this player who is giving so much. So do his own comrades. Each passing game becomes more evident the influence of the footballer in the results. "He is a player that stimulates the rest of the team," admitted Sergio Ramos.
The first Classic of 2013 is here and Real Madrid arrives ready and confident in the leadership exercised by Cristiano Ronaldo. Not only by the match Cristinao played against Getafe but also for what he showed in the first half against Valencia at the Mestalla league match.
After the last match, Cristiano Ronaldo was already focused on the party to be held tomorrow, Wednesday at the Santiago Bernabeu. "It's an important game, a difficult game. We are going to play against one of the toughest teams in the world, so it will be a great night. We play at home so we have a good chance. We have to play well because we know that Barcelona is a fantastic team. I hope it's a great night for us and we are waiting for this great game," he said.
