New Delhi: Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo celebrated his 350th league goal while playing against Alaves, a big milestone for the Portuguese striker who has relentlessly proven that his form is lethal and it also has endurance.
However, when his goals were tallied up and analysed, many realised that his numbers amounted also of the many penalties he has secured in his career.
Out of the 265 La Liga goals he has scored for Madrid, 53 of them come from penalties, which accounts for 20%. In Champions League, 10 of 80 strikes are penalties.
In the Copa del Rey, the Portuguese striker has hit 66 penalties out of 371 goals.
Hence, the name ‘Penaldo’; but it is always up to his fans and the ultimate outcome of the game which decides in the ability of a player.
