The Portuguese star, who made his 300th Real Madrid appearance against Getafe, is also on the verge of his fourth Golden Shoe.
The conclusion of the 2014/15 La Liga season sees Cristiano Ronaldo claim the third Pichichi Trophy of his career and, with other European leagues still to finish, leave himself on the cusp of a fourth Golden Shoe. The Real Madrid forward ends the La Liga campaign with a personal best tally of 48 goals, ahead of the 46 that he hit in 2011/12.

Against Getafe, Ronaldo reached the figure of 300 competitive appearances for Real Madrid. The Portuguese has found the net 314 times in this number of games, to boast a scoring rate that is unparalleled in the club's history. Indeed, nobody else among the Whites' all-time top 20 marksmen has an average higher than one per game. The man who comes closest is Puskas (0.93).

200 matches in La Liga
Of his 300 games in the white shirt, 200 have come in the Spanish top flight, in which the player has netted 226 goals and won three Pichichi Trophies. He is the second highest scorer in the division in Real Madrid's history, and is very close to the total of 228 achieved by Raúl.

Goalscoring record
What's more, Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick against Getafe means that he has set his best ever goals tally in all competitions in a single season. With 61, he surpasses his mark of 60 from 2011/12.
