Superstar Ronaldo Sets Spanish League Record For Most Goals in One Season

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has become the first La Liga player to score 40 goals in a single league season in the history of the Spanish League. Ronaldo scored twice in Real Madrid's 8-1 rout of Almeria on Saturday. 

In his 34th La Liga game of the 2010-11 campaign, Ronaldo scored his 39th and 40th goal - setting the record to the delight of his fans on the final day against Almeria at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Ronaldo finished his campaign with a spectacular record of 40 goals in La Liga and 53 goals total. He was obsiously delighted as he danced with teamates after netting the record-breaking goal as Madrid coach Jose Mourinho grinned from the bench. The Portugal winger's second goal increased his season tally to 53 in all competitions, including 11 in the last four games. 

Ronaldo and Barcelona forward Lionel Messi are the first Spanish league players to score at least 50 goals in all competitions in one season. Last campaign, Lionel Messi scored 34 goals in La Liga play.
