Cristiano Ronaldo continues to be unstoppable, and he made history in Granada. With his goal at the Nuevo Los Cármenes, the Portuguese became the first ever Real Madrid player to score in eight consecutive Liga games. The Whites' forward now has 17 goals in the league.

Puskas, Olmedo, Van Nistelrooy, Hugo Sánchez, Olsen and Ronaldo himself had found the net on seven consecutive occasions. Ronaldo's run started in the derby against Atlético at the Bernabéu, and continued against Deportivo, Elche, Villarreal, Athletic, Levante, Barcelona and now Granada.
