The Real Madrid star reached a pair of goalscoring landmarks with his opener against Malaga as he led his team closer to a league title

When Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring in Sunday's La Liga clash between Real Madrid and Malaga, the Portuguese star not only pushed his team closer to a domestic title, but he hit a pair of personal milestones in the process.

The goal, scored in the second minute, allowed the 32-year-old to match rival Lionel Messi's phenomal yearly output over nearly a decade.

That the record came against Malaga should not be too surprising, as Ronaldo has scored for fun against them over the years. In fact, he is averaging a goal per game in matches against Malaga.

Given Ronaldo's scoring record against them, Carlos Kameni and Malaga will be glad not to have to face Ronaldo again until next season!
