Ronaldo on brink of record as Real to face Granada

Ronaldo has scored eight goals in his last two games (three of which came from the penalty spot). He now has scored 321 goals for the club, just two short of the all-time record set by legend Raul Gonzalez. Another hat-trick would see Ronaldo make history on Saturday and judging by current <g data-gr-id="22">form th</g>at would surprise nobody.

Rafael Benitez’s side <g data-gr-id="27">have</g> hit the goal trail in their last three matches after struggling to find the net at the beginning of the season. Games against Real Betis, Espanyol and Shakhtar Donetsk have come at just the right time and yielded 15 goals, reports Xinhua.

Betis are newly promoted to La Liga, Espanyol <g data-gr-id="25">are</g> always an easy opponent for Madrid. And <g data-gr-id="20">Shahktar</g> had a player sent off and two dubious penalties given against them, but the general feeling is that Benitez could not have asked for better rivals to allow his side to grow in confidence for the tougher challenges that lie ahead.

That tough challenge shouldn’t arrive on Saturday with the visit of Granada, who apart from a surprise win against Getafe, have looked a poor side this season and who will arrive at Madrid with memories of the 9-1 thrashing they received in the ground last season.
