Many soccer players don’t score 90 goals in total during their careers, but according to various reports Cristiano Ronaldo has managed to score at least one goal in every minute of a 90 minute game so far in his career.
The Portuguese star who plays for Real Madrid recently scored his 400th career goal and has added five more since. Out of his 405 career goals 358 have been club goals with another 47 being scored for Portugal’s national senior team. If you’d like to, you could also add in 11 more that he scored while representing his homeland from Under-16 to Under-23.
When Ronaldo scored in the seventh and 16th minutes against Atletico Madrid on February 11 in a 2-0 Copa del Rey away win it was the first time in his career he had scored in the seventh minute. This may seem ironic since the lucky number seven is also Ronaldo’s shirt number. This is a partial breakdown of Ronaldo’s goals.
He has scored just one goal in the 1st, 7th, 15th, 17th, 31st, 40th, 43rd, 53rd, and 78th minutes. He has scored a minimum of two goals in the other 81 minutes of a football match. There’s no doubt that Ronaldo has a flair for drama as he’s scored the most goals of his career in at the end of each half. He has 22 goals in the 90th minute and 12 goals in the 45th minutes of games. Ronaldo also has a habit of scoring goals in the 23rd and 68th minutes as he has 10 in each of those minutes.
Ronaldo has 235 goals for Real Madrid, 118 for Manchester United and five for Sporting Lisbon along with the 27 for Portugal. He has naturally scored the most goals against Spanish clubs with 15 goals against Sevilla, 13 against Getafe and a dozen each against Barcelona and Malaga. When he played for Man United, Ronaldo had the most luck against Aston Villa with nine goals and Tottenham Hotspur with eight goals.
However, he did have a rough time against Chelsea and believe it or not, Sunderland as he managed to score just once each against those Premier League sides. When it comes to playing in Europe, he’s scored seven times against Dutch club Ajax and six against Galatasary of Turkey. Internationally, he has scored four goals against Sweden and Holland.
