Cristiano Ronaldo Number One in European Golden Boots Standings

cristiano ronaldoReal Madrid striker, Cristiano Ronaldo currently become the top scorer in Spanish league with 23 goals in 19 games. He is 1 goal away from Messi who collects 22 goals.

But who would’ve thought that with all his productive achievement, there is one player who scored more goals than him.

It was Aleksander Cekulajevs from Latvia, who played for Estonian leagues. So far, he recorded  46 goals in 35 matches.

However, Estonian league has the coefficient of 1, while Spanish league is 2. Therefore, he and Ronaldo share the same points of 46 in Europe Golden Boots standings.

But for Ronaldo, he gets the bigger chance to win it since the opportunity is still wide open. While the Estonian League is already over, the Spanish league is still ongoing.

Here are the name list of European Golden Boot standings :

1. Aleksanders Cekulajevs (Latvia / Trans Narva) 46  goal/46 points

1. Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal / Real Madrid) 23 goal/46 points

3. Lionel Messi (Argentina / Barcelona) 22 goal/44 points

4. Robin van Persie (Netherlands / Arsenal) 19 goal/38 points

Cristiano Ronaldo Pictures vs Almeria (16 January 2011) La liga

cristianoronaldo20Real Madrid had to be satisfy with only a 1-1 draw with the host Almeria on yesterday’s match, and collected only 1 point. While their rival Barcelona succeeded with full points after a victory over Malaga in home match with 4-1.

On the paper, Real Madrid clearly more dominant, since Almeria only sits in the 19th rank on the liga standings. Unfortunately, the result is quite surprising, and it led Barca straight ahead with 4 points.

Cristiano Ronaldo actually got an opportunity to add their second goal with a free-kick, but failed. The good thing is that Messi didn’t score yesterday, so that makes Cris still as the  top scorer in La liga.
