La Liga is paying tribute to Cristiano Ronaldo. The League, where Ronaldo enjoyed his best moments as a professional football player, has recently honored the superstar by releasing a video of all his best goals for Real Madrid in the 2016-17 season.
“Unbelievable” is one of describing how seasonal Cristiano Ronaldo was at Madrid back then. In the 2016-17 season, Ronaldo tore defenses apart like he usually does. Still, this time, he won a second consecutive Champions League for Real Madrid and, at the same time, ended Barcelona’s La Liga title dominance.
A spectacular Ronaldo capped off a successful campaign by putting up a match-winning performance in the Champions League finals against the Turin side that he pulls on their shirt today.
Cristiano Ronaldo, red-hot in Champions League that season, punished Juventus with his trademark display. His two goals in Cardiff that day took his 2016-17 tally to an impressive 42 goals in all competitions. He as well added 12 assists to take his goal contribution to 54 goals in 46 games in 2016-17.
That same campaign, Cristiano Ronaldo scooped all the manager awards alone, including Best FIFA Men’s Player of the Year, UEFA Best Player of the Year, Portuguese Player of the Year, and a then record-equally fifth Ballon d’Or awards.
The Portuguese and Juventus superstar also smashed the following records in the 2016-2016 season;
- All-time leading goalscorer in the six biggest European leagues at 367 goals
- The first footballer to score 100 goals in European club competition
- Most headed Champions League goals in history
- Most Champions League goals and hat-trick in the knockout stages
Meanwhile, in order to commemorate Cristiano Ronaldo’s sensational season, La Liga released a video showcasing all his best goals in the Spanish league that campaign.
The goals did not only cement Cristiano Ronaldo’s status as the best player in the world that season, but they were all instrumental in winning Real Madrid their 33rd league title.
