Cristiano on the hunt of a Ronaldo's record

Cristiano Ronaldo is the recordman of Real Madrid and loves challenges. Therefore, He will like to know that if he scores a goal this afternoon against Valencia, he will have become the first player in the history of Real Madrid that scores in eight consecutive league matches. The Portuguese was accurate in front of goal the last seven days of the last League: scored against Atletico Madrid (3), Sporting, Barcelona, Sevilla, Athletic Bilbao, Granada and Mallorca.

In the history of the white club, there have been great players who have achieved this record. Have scored goals in seven games in a row Puskas (twice), Hugo Sanchez, Van Nistelrooy, Olmedo and Roque Olsen. If Cristiano Ronaldo meets the challenge and opens his scorer locker today, will be the first white player to score eight days straight and will match recognized 'gunners' as Zarra, Langara, Pruden, Ansola, Pizzi and Forlan.

But Cristiano then would have ahead the big challenge of catching his namesake Ronaldo Nazario, who in his only season as Barcelona player (1996-97) was always able to score between days 30 and 39 of that season. That record that keeps the Brazilian forward at the top of this record is shared with another Barcelona player, Mariano Martin, a Spanish scorer of the 40s.

For Cristiano a very attractive opportunity arises if he scores today, because in the days 2 and 3, Real Madrid will face Getafe and Granada, two opponents against which he has been able to score before. But at first, the Portuguese must beat Diego Alves today. And it is not going to be easy. Valencia is a great team (third-ranked last season) and in the last match between the teams, the final scoreboard showed a 0-0.
