Real Madrid forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, is now Real Madrid’s all-time leading goalscorer in La Liga.
The Portuguese captain netted five times, as Madrid hammered Espanyol 6-0 on Saturday, including a first-half hat-trick.
It is the second time Ronaldo will be scoring five goals in a game and he is the first player to have achieved the defeat for the Bernabeu club.
In doing so, the 30-year-old has reached a total of 230 goals in La Liga, breaking the 228-goal record which was held by Raul.
The former Madrid striker needed 550 matches to reach his total, while Ronaldo achieved it in 204 league games.
Ronaldo’s 28th career hat-trick in the Spanish league, also means he is now fourth in La Liga’s scoring charts.
