Cristiano Ronaldo enters Top 25 La Liga goalscorers of all time

Cristiano Ronaldo's thirst for goals is so great that he is already among the Top 25 goalscorers in the history of La Liga.

The Portuguese marksman has now scored 138 goals in the league, the same amount as Barcelona's legendary Hungarian striker Kubala.

And he has swept into the record books: he has earned his place in the Top 25 in just 127 games, recording an average of 1.08 goals per game, the highest of all the top 25 goalscorers (see table below), including Messi, whose average is 0.86 goals.

If he scores tonight against Mallorca, he will equal Bakero (Real Sociedad and Barcelona), Badenes (Valencia and Valladolid) and Araujo (Sevilla), and if he scores a hat-trick he will equal Igoa, the legendary Valencia and Real Sociedad striker.

One challenge for the remainder of the season is to equal Ferenc Puskas's record of 156 goals. But even by Cristiano's standards, it will be difficult: he would need to score 18 times in the 11 remaining games. Ahead of the Hungarian there are five other Madridistas on the list: Santillana (186 goals), Pahiño (210), Di Stefano, (227) Raúl (228) and Hugo Sánchez (234).

While it will take Cristiano a little longer to reach those players, today he could reach a milestone of his own: if he scores against Mallorca he will have scored 350 goals in his career: 38 with Portugal, 5 with Sporting Clube de Portugal, 118 with Manchester United and 118 with Madrid.
