Cristiano Ronaldo equals Raul record vs Real Betis

Real Madrid attacker Cristiano Ronaldo this evening joined Raul as joint-holder of a remarkable Blancos’ club record.


The two sides went head to head at the Estadio Benito Villamarín, with hosts Betis coming into proceedings on the back of 2 straight league wins, over Villarreal and Deportivo respectively.

Real, meanwhile, had bounced back from a disappointing 2-2 draw with Levante two weeks ago with a pair of impressive victories, first over Real Sociedad(5-2), and then over Paris Saint-Germain (3-1).


Entertaining evening

A thrilling affair has since been played out between the two sides at the Benito Villamarín, with Marco Asensio’s early strike cancelled out by Aïssa Mandi and a Nacho own goal before half-time to see the hosts head into the break in front.

However, Real showcased their class with a stunning second-half comeback, as goals from Sergio Ramos, Marco Asensio, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema saw the Spanish and European champions turn the game on its head.

Record in sight

And the night also marked a special one in the Real Madrid career of Cristiano Ronaldo, as the Portuguese attacker moved to within one goal (in another game) of becoming the sole-holder of another incredible Blancos’ club record:
