After their 3-1 win at Osasuna, Real Madrid surpassed 100 official goals for the season.
Zinedine Zidane’s team left El Sadar on 101 after Lucas Vazquez’s late strike, and such a number at this stage of the season speaks of the enormous firepower that Los Blancos possess.
Of those 101 goals, 53 have arrived in LaLiga Santander, 22 in the Copa del Rey, 16 in the Champions League, six in the FIFA Club World Cup and three in the European Super Cup.
The first on Saturday came via Cristiano Ronaldo, his fourteenth goal in LaLiga.
On a day that Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi also scored (now 18 and 17, respectively), Ronaldo’s strike means he stays in the fight for the Pichichi Trophy
More importantly it was his third consecutive scoring game, to add to the strikes against Celta Vigo in the cup and Real Sociedad in the league.
It’s his best streak of the season, although it could not be otherwise against Osasuna, a rival that Ronaldo has now scored 11 goals against.
No Real Madrid player has ever managed more in their history.
Isco’s timely second saw him equal his tally from last season and is the former Malaga man’s fifth goal in 2016/17, with four months of competition still ahead.
Lucas with the 101st
Lucas Vazquez, skillfully lofting the ball over Sirigu, shows that the scoring facet in the team is something that all of this Real Madrid has in their locker.
He is the eighteenth different player to score in LaLiga for Los Blancos this season.
