New year, new Cristiano: 17 goals already

Cristiano Ronaldo is a goal-scoring machine in 2018.
After his brace against Eibar, Ronaldo with 17 official goals is the top scorer among the 6 major European leagues (including Portugal).

Atletico’s Griezmann has scored 14, Barcelona’s Luis Suarez and Benfica’s Jonas both have 13, and the trio of Messi, Neymar and Aguero scored 12.

On 18 November 2017, Cristiano left the pitch after derby with only one goal still to his name in La Liga. In 2018 he has already scored 14, with 10 goals in his last five league games (Real Sociedad, Betis, Alaves, Getafe and Eibar).

Cristiano’s 3 goals which destroyed PSG helped Real Madrid fans to continue dreaming about another European crown. His nation will also hope it is prolonged during the World Cup in Russia.

In the Pichichi race, the difference between Messi and Cristiano is now just six (24 to 18). Could Ronaldo challenge Messi for the Spanish top scorer? What do you think?
