Cristiano Ronaldo once again showed that he can do things that no one can. And with that he not only surpassed Messi today but also touched one of Messi’s records. What did he do, you may ask? Scored in match, which is natural for him. Scored a hat-trick in a match and touched Lionel Messi’s record 24 hat-trick in La Liga. Even that is a big news but everyone knew that if anyone can do it then its Ronaldo. But he also scored 5 goals in one match and now he has 4 more goals than Lionel Messi in La Liga.
So basically in the match against Granada, he just devastated their opponents. That’s why even a 9-1 victory seems small infront of this strikers achievement.
Ronaldo was in devastating form last year. scored goals after goals and even created a 10+ goal difference with Lionel Messi by the end of last year. everyone was thinking this is again Ronaldo’s year. But, the new year came as a devastation for him. Played 12 matches but only scored 6 goals. While in the same time Messi already scored 17 goals and was ahead of Ronaldo.
Ronaldo was ready to blast off. And so he did. This time against Granada where he completed his hat-trick within 8 minutes. And even that was in the first half of the match. In the 2nd half he scored 2 goals and made 5 goals in 1 match. With that, Ronaldo now has 36 goals while Messi has 32.
Ronaldo scored 4 goals quite a few times. But this is the first time he scored 5 goals. Messi also scored 5 goals before but that is a world record as Messi did that in Champions League. Ronaldo were 2 goals behind the La Liga record goals. Its 7 in La Liga for a single player. This is an indication that Ronaldo is back.
