Ronaldo Scores 5 Goals

Cristiano Ronaldo scored five goals for Real Madrid for the second time in a 6-0 rout of Espanyol in the Spanish league on Saturday. Held scoreless in the first two rounds, Ronaldo exploded with a blistering hat trick in the seventh, 17th and 20th minutes before setting up Karim Benzema to make it 4-0 before halftime in Barcelona. The Portugal forward added two more goals in the second half against the hosts’ demoralized defense. Ronaldo scored five goals for the first time in a 9-1 win over Granada on April 5. On top of this, he has also scored four goals in a single match on three occasions for Madrid. Ronaldo’s latest scoring feat moved the Ballon d’Or holder into fourth place on the Spanish league’s all-time scoring list. His total of 231 goals takes him past Madrid greats Alfredo di Stefano (227) and Raul Gonzalez (228). Barcelona’s Lionel Messi holds the record with 285.
