Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has surpassed Atletico Bilbao’s Aritz Aduriz to become the only active player to have scored the most headed goals in the La Liga.
The goal came in the 41st minute in Madrid’s 2-1 win over Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium on Sunday.
Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 46 headed goals in La Liga, more than any other current player in the competition.
After the visitors took the lead through Antonio Sanabria, Marcelo’s pinpoint cross founded an unmarked Ronaldo who powered his header into the net for the equaliser. Sergio Ramos sealed maximum points with an 81st minute winner.
Ronaldo’s header was his 19th league goal of the season and it allowed him to leapfrog Aduriz who was tied with the Portuguese star on 45 headers before the game.
