Cristiano Ronaldo 700 club goals

Cristiano Ronaldo came off the bench to register his 700th club goal as Manchester United came from behind to win 2-1 against Everton on Sunday – but how did he score his record-breaking haul?

The 37-year-old recorded his latest milestone 20 years and two days after his first ever club goal for Sporting Lisbon in the Portuguese Primeira Liga in 2002.

That sustained strike rate helped notch 311 goals in La Liga and also helped register a record-breaking 140 in the Champions League as he won the competition with United in 2008 and collected another four winners’ medal with Real.
A host of La Liga rivals are among his favourite opponents: he smashed a career-topping 27 goals past Sevilla, including a four-goal haul in 2011 and four hat-tricks – while also netting 25 past Real’s neighbours Atletico and 20 past El Clasico rivals Barcelona.

Ronaldo has been more successful on home soil at his respective clubs, scoring 390 times – compared with 289 on the road and another 21 on neutral territory.

Incredibly, the 37-year-old is just two shy of a century of goals struck from outside the box, with 48 of those coming from direct free-kicks – while converting another 129 goals from 12 yards,

In total, Ronaldo has scored 460 of his haul with his favoured right boot, but has also found the back of the net 125 times with left-footed finishes and headed home another 113 times.

The timing of his goals has remained relatively constant during games over his career, scoring in almost equal measure during 15-minute periods – understandably scoring more during the closing stages due to second-half stoppage time.
