The Portuguese striker netted his side's second goal of the afternoon from the penalty spot during a 2-0 win over Eibar to equal fellow Merengue favourite Sanchez.

Cristiano Ronaldo has clinched his place among the three all-time top scorers in the Spanish Primera Division after netting against Eibar for Real Madrid on Sunday. 

After wasting several promising chances, the former Manchester United man scored from the penalty spot to cap a 2-0 victory for the Merengue - ending a run of more than five hours without a league goal.

That strike took him onto 234 goals in the nation's top-flight, drawing level with former Madrid favourite Hugo Sanchez in the rankings.

Ronaldo, however, reached the mark in 134 fewer games than the legendary Mexican forward. 

His penalty, moreover, took him to 48 successful Liga spot-kicks, 11 more than anyone else in the top five European leagues since 2009/10.

Zarra, with 251 goals, is the next target for Cristiano, while Lionel Messi leads the standings with 290 goals.
