NEWS | 02/03/2015He is the first player to achieve this in the history of the Spanish top flight.
The only season at the Whites in which he has finished below this figure was his first with the club. In the 2010/11 campaign he scored 41, with his 30th goal coming against Barcelona on matchday 32. The following year, in 2011/12, he claimed his largest haul so far: 46. That season he hit the 30 mark on matchday 25, just as he did this term, in a match against Espanyol.
Two stunning goals
In 2012/13, Cristiano brought up 30 goals courtesy of a terrific free-kick at San Mamés on matchday 31, the Portugal star going on to end the La Liga campaign with 34. And last season, in which he won the Pichichi trophy with 31, he picked up number 30 on matchday 35, thanks to a spectacular effort from outside of the area against Osasuna.
