Enjoy the majestic goal that gave the Portuguese striker his half-century, a mark he has now reached for the fourth season in a row.
The best player in the world just keeps breaking records. He has reached the 50-goal mark with Real Madrid for the fourth season in a row. Fittingly, Cristiano reached the mark with a majestic goal. In added time, and a goal down to Valencia, he conjured up an impossible backheeled volley to seal the draw.

Cristiano only failed to reach the 50-goal mark in his first year in Spain. In the 2010/11 season he scored 54, in 2011/12, 60 and last year, 55. This season he has kept up his spectacular goal-rate of more than one per match. He only needed 45 matches to find the net 50 times. In addition to the 31 goals that make him the top goal-scorer in the league, he has scored 16 in the Champions League and three in the cup.
