Cristiano Ronaldo may have left Real Madrid in the summer to join Juventus but that has not stopped him from topping Los Blancos’ scoring chart for the calendar year.

The debates over whether Madrid miss their legendary Portuguese forward continue but the statistics speak for themselves, especially when it comes to goals.

Ronaldo ends 2018 on 28 goals for Los Blancos, which is one more than Gareth Bale (27) and ten more than Karim Benzema (18).

Sergio Ramos managed ten goals while Marco Asensio and Isco netted eight each.

Ronaldo‘s feat is made even more remarkable considering the fact that he managed those 28 goals in just 22 matches, while Bale needed 48 matches to score 27 times, and Benzema 53 matches to score 18.
