Penaldo? Ronaldo brings up century of penalty goals

Comments()
The Real Madrid superstar scored two first-half penalties against Valencia, thus bringing up his 100th and 101st spot-kick strikes

Cristiano Ronaldo has netted his 100th penalty goal in all competitions against Valencia on Saturday.

The Real Madrid superstar was fouled by Martin Montoya in the area in the 16th minute, and he stepped up to convert from 12 yards, bringing up a century for both club and country in all competitions.

Ronaldo then added his 101st spot-kick goal, smashing the ball into the bottom left corner, as Montoya again committed a foul in the box, this time felling Karim Benzema.

Ronaldo has struggled to find his shooting boots this season, and had netted just six La Liga goals prior to the encounter with Valencia at Mestalla.

The 32-year-old's struggles have been a symptom of Real's apparent decline this term, with the club sitting fourth, 19 points behind Barcelona, prior to Saturday's kick-off.

Ronaldo has thus been linked with a number of clubs, including PSG and former employers Manchester United, with him apparently no longer indispensable.

Indeed, Goal understands that Real are hoping to sign Neymar from the French club this summer, with the Brazilian having been promised that he will be sold if PSG win the Champions League.
