Among the many great seasons of Cristiano Ronaldo, the 2008-09 campaign stands out. It saw Ronaldo score the most goals in a single season. During this period, Ronaldo averaged 5.6 shots per game. He scored six league trebles. Real Madrid finished as runners-up to Barcelona, but were eliminated in the semifinals of the Champions League. At the same time, Ronaldo was rewarded with his first La Liga Golden Boot.
It may seem like it’s been a long time since Ronaldo had a productive season, but he had arguably his best ever last year. Ronaldo scored 34 league goals this year, including hat-tricks against Real Sociedad and Sevilla. His goal-scoring ability was also at its peak, scoring a record-breaking five goals against Atletico Madrid. The Portuguese international also scored three important goals against the Czech Republic and Netherlands to help Portugal qualify for the Euro2012 finals. Unfortunately, however, Madrid were knocked out of the Champions League on penalties in both UCL and Euro2012 finals.
As for Cristiano Ronaldo’s individual achievements, he is tying Alfredo Di Stefano’s record for most goals in a season. He has also become the fastest player to score forty goals in one season in the top European league. Cristiano also scored against every team in La Liga in 2011/12, a record he achieved in one season only once before. This season’s performance will be hard to match, and his efforts will be rewarded as he continues to break records.
Despite the fact that his best season is often considered the previous one, it’s fair to say that 2017-18 was Ronaldo’s best. This season saw the Portugal international score a total of 55 goals in all competitions, including the Champions League. His goals were plentiful in La Liga, where he scored hat-tricks against Atletico Madrid and Sevilla. He also scored a hat-trick against Atletico in the La Liga final, a feat that no other player has achieved. He also scored a total of 12 goals in the Champions League, which helped Real Madrid to win the competition.
While many pundits have pointed out the individual impact Ronaldo makes, a player like Ronaldo can often be detrimental to the team structure. Teams adapt to his presence, and this takes extra defensive yards away from other players. This season, Ronaldo scored 24 goals in all competitions and was the league’s top scorer. However, he did not have the same impact on the team as he did in previous years.
The best season for Cristiano Ronaldo came in the 2016-17 season. Ronaldo scored 34 La Liga goals, including two hat-tricks against Sevilla and Real Sociedad. He also netted six goals in the Champions League. He finished behind Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez on the league goalscoring charts, but led Real Madrid to La Liga and the Champions League title. He also scored a hat-trick in the Copa del Rey, and a hat-trick against Galatarasay in the Spanish competition.
Real Madrid won La Liga and broke several records, including the most goals scored, best goal difference and most wins in a season. Ronaldo also won the European Golden Shoe and the Copa 90 and Copa del Rey. He won the UEFA Golden Shoe for the fourth time in his career and was also a finalist for the Golden Ball. Cristiano’s season was highlighted by a series of individual awards.
When it comes to goals, Cristiano Ronaldo’s best season was probably the 2007-08 campaign. In that season, the Real Madrid forward scored 31 goals in 34 games, finishing seven goals ahead of Emmanuel Adebayor and Fernando Torres. He also led Portugal to a first UEFA Nations League title in 2019 and the Golden Boot as top scorer in Euro 2020. But even with his recent form, the Portuguese forward can’t claim his best season.
During the 2007-08 season, Ronaldo’s stature in England increased dramatically, with 42 goals. In 2008-09, he helped Manchester United win a hat-trick of trophies. In that season, he also scored 26 goals in all competitions. Ronaldo’s game has improved since then, combining pace and skill with power. He attempted nine dribbles for every ninety minutes.
In his second season at Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo broke the record for goals in a single La Liga season with 40. The goal tally was his highest ever in La Liga and he was also awarded the European Golden Shoe for the second time in his career. In 2009, Cristiano Ronaldo was the highest scoring player in the league, scoring 33 goals, surpassing the previous season’s total of 48.
The Portuguese tally is a bit high, but if you include his Serie A and Champions League hat-tricks, 2009-10 is easily Cristiano Ronaldo’s best season. After scoring an unbelievable 100 goals in one season, he also won the Coppa Italia and became the fastest player to hit the century mark with Juventus. The Serie A, Premier League, and La Liga were all dominated by him during that season, and he finished top scorer in all three competitions. However, in the midst of such success, he was dropped to the bench, with a lot of doubts.
The Portuguese superstar is coming off one of his best seasons of his career and has just scored his tenth La Liga hat-trick. The 33-year-old played in a total of 53 matches in all competitions. His goals total is up from 34 last season, but he is not alone. His form has seen him win numerous awards. He led Portugal to a first major tournament title in Euro 2016 and won the Golden Boot in Euro 2020.
The Portuguese has had a brilliant season in 2010. This was his best season since his arrival at Real Madrid, as he broke a number of goalscoring records that were previously held by some classic players. He began his goalscoring run away from home against Getafe, scoring two crucial goals in a 3-2 win. He has since consolidated his massive performances, scoring four goals in two games and assisting Kaka’s first goal in La Liga after an injury.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s best season in La Liga came last season, and his record is the stuff of legends. Ronaldo scored 48 goals and assisted 17 others, and was the most followed person on Instagram that season. His winger and goalscoring traits were all at their peak during that campaign, and he won the Golden Shoe for the first time. Here’s a closer look at his season.
The Portuguese star was six feet one inch tall, which made him a formidable athlete. He began as a right winger but evolved into a forward, making him an all-around threat for opposing defenses. Whether he was scoring goals or making plays, Ronaldo’s free-reined attack was unstoppable. He was also known for hypnotizing opponents and creating space for himself.
The Spaniard’s hat-trick against Espanyol in the 2010/11 La Liga season is considered his most memorable goal of the season. The hat-trick extended his scoring streak to four games, and he also scored the winning goal against Barcelona in the Copa del Rey final. Several fan polls voted the strike as the season’s best, including Marca and Real Madrid fans. Ronaldo went on to thrash Sevilla 6-2 in the Copa del Rey, which he won in the 2012-13 season.
After an injury to his ankle on 10 October, Ronaldo played just one game for Real Madrid before returning to action. His first start came against Barcelona on 29 November. However, he missed the penalty against Almeria on 6 December, while the second half ended with the Spanish league title being won by Real Madrid. The injury forced him to miss the Portuguese national team’s friendly against Gabon, which resulted in his injury.
There are many reasons why 2013-14 was Cristiano Ronaldo’s most impressive season. Despite a slow start to the La Liga season (he only managed to score once in his first eight games), he gathered his momentum in the second half and ended up with 26 league goals. He also had a fantastic Champions League campaign, becoming the first player to score in all six group games. It was also his most successful season with Real Madrid, as his team reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
He surpassed his previous best season by scoring 55 goals, including six hat-tricks in the Champions League. In La Liga, he also scored against Atletico Madrid and Sevilla, as well as scoring against Barcelona in the final. His performance was so good that he became the first player in Champions League history to reach 50 goals in a season. His outstanding season was also capped off with a hat-trick against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final, making him the first player to reach that feat.
The three-time Ballon d’Or winner had a stellar season, but he also improved his playmaking skills. Often deemed selfish, the Portuguese has increased his chances-creation ratio and become a more consistent assist-creator. This has translated into increased minutes on the pitch, with Ronaldo scoring five goals and creating five more. In addition, he has boosted his assist total to career highs.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-tricks soared in La Liga, with eight in his first five matches. He scored a hat-trick against Granada, while netting three in his last four games. Despite failing to lead Real Madrid to a second consecutive La Liga title, he was still arguably his best season. With 61 goals, he boasted the highest goals-per-game ratio in his career.
