Ronaldo eyes goal record, six fight for survival

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is looking for personal glory on Saturday when the Portuguese star aims to beat the all-time La Liga goals record of 38 on the final day of the season.

Ronaldo equalled the record, set by Athletic Bilbao’s Telmo Zarra in 1951 and matched by Real Madrid’s Mexican icon Hugo Sanchez in 1990, last weekend and can post a new landmark when Real host already-relegated Almeria at the Santiago Bernabeu.

On a personal level Ronaldo has been a huge success but the silverware has not been as forthcoming with the Kings Cup win not enough to satisfy the former Manchester United man in a season where Barcelona wrapped up the title.

“It could be my best season in terms of goals but as a team we wanted to win the Champions League and league titles,” said Ronaldo.

Barcelona are still basking in their third successive league title and their final game of the season at Malaga on Saturday will be another chance to blood youngsters with the Champions League final on the horizon.
