Real Madrid star Ronaldo on brink of breaking new Spanish Liga scoring record

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo could break a new goal scoring record in Spain.

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo could break a new goal scoring record in Spain.

The world's most expensive player has netted seven times in his last two matches to take his tally to 36 in La Liga this season - two short of the mark set by Athletic Bilbao striker Telmo Zarra in 1950-51 and equalled by Madrid's Hugo Sanchez in 1989-90.

Ronaldo, whose 49 goals in all competitions this term mean he is already Madrid's leading scorer in one season, overtaking the legendary Ferenc Puskas' tally of 47 in the 1959-60 campaign, said of the possibility of entering the record books: "I'm not thinking a lot about that.

"I prefer to do my thing to help the team to win and if I beat the records then that would be good, but if I don't, to be honest I don't care about that."
