Ronaldo started the La Liga season rather sedately leading some to believe that he wasn’t going to that well this time around.However he has changed gears and suddenly exploded into action.2 more goals against Sporting Gijon on saturday means that he has overtaken both Messi and Suarez in the race for this year’s Pichichi.
He is now on 10 goals whereas they have only managed 8 each so far.
Apart from that he also hit two more goalscoring milestones in Real Madrid’s 2-1 win over Sporting Gijon.
He has taken his tally of goals in 2016 to 51 goals and for the sixth calendar year in succession he has scored over 50 goals for both club and country (38 for Real Madrid, 13 for Portugal).
And the rest of the competition are eating his dust at the moment.Quite a remarkable turnaround.
