With his header against Schalke, the Portuguese player equalled Santillana's 290 goal tally.
Cristiano Ronaldo continues to write his name in the Real Madrid history books and is now the club's third top scorer of all time. His header against Schalke brings the forward's tally with the Whites to 290 goals, thus equalling Santillana's record. The Portuguese star has reached this milestone after 280 games, while the Cantabrian needed 645 matches to do so. The only players ahead of Ronaldo are Raúl (323) and Di Stéfano (308).   

Cristiano Ronaldo began demonstrating his eye for goal in his debut on 29 August 2009 against Deportivo, when he got on the scoresheet during a 3-2 win in the Santiago Bernabéu. The ease with which the Portuguese man is able to break records means that, in the space of just six years, his name is already being talked about in the same breath as the club's all-time best players.
