Ronaldo becomes the 1st player in Real Madrid’s history to score 40+ goals in 7 consecutive seasons

Cristiano Ronaldo’s early goal against Malaga on Sunday ensured Real Madrid have scored in every match in a LaLiga season for the first time in the club’s history.

The goal also put the Portuguese name in the history book as the first Madrid player to score 40+ goals in seven consecutive seasons.

Ronaldo struck in the second minute at La Rosaleda, the forward finishing off a precise Isco through-ball to put his side in front and score his 16th goal in 16 league games against Malaga.

Madrid have now scored in 64 consecutive games in all competitions, with Zinedine Zidane’s team extending the record they took from Bayern Munich by beating Sevilla 4-1 on May 14.

Zidane’s men need only a point against Malaga to clinch the Liga title for the first time since the 2011-12 campaign, with rivals Barcelona three points behind and in action at home to Eibar.
