Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo surpassed Raúl's goal scoring record for Spanish club Real Madrid in a La Liga match against Levante UD on Saturday. Ronaldo netted his 324th goal in his 310th match for Los Blancos on Saturday, breaking the previous record set by Spanish footballer Raúl of 323 goals in 741 games.

He earlier equaled Raúl's goal scoring record for Madrid in a UEFA Champions League match against Swedish football club Malmö FF when he scored a brace, crossing the landmark of 500 career goals and scored the record-breaking goal in the 30th minute from outside the penalty area in this match.

In Saturday's match, Real Madrid had 58% ball possession against Levante. The match saw five yellow cards. Four for the visitors and one for Real Madrid player Kovačić. A total of eighteen fouls were committed in the game. Ronaldo assisted Brazilian Marcelo in the 27th minute and Marcelo netted the goal in the left corner. Minutes later, Toni Kroos assisted Ronaldo, and he scored the record breaking goal in the bottom right corner. The first half ended in 2–0.

At the beginning of second half, Vázquez was substituted in for Gareth Bale. He assisted Jesé in the 81st minute and Jesé scored in the top corner providing a 3–0 win for Real Madrid.

Real is now on the top of Liga table.




What Ronaldo does you cannot name. It is on another historic level,[...]It is incredible what he has done in only six years, scoring an average of more than 50 goals a season, when it used to be hard for me to reach 20. I hope he keeps scoring many more goals for a long time and helps the team to win titles.
-Raúl Speaking to Marca
