LaLiga: Ronaldo makes bet with Real Madrid team-mates over winning Pichichi ahead of Messi


Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly made a bet with his Real Madrid team-mates, that he will finish this season as the top scorer in Spain.

Ronaldo continued his superb scoring streak on Sunday night, with four goals in their 6-3 victory over Girona.

The Portuguese has now netted in eight straight games in all competitions and has 18 goals in his last nine La Liga outings.

As at November 5, Ronaldo had just one goal having played seven league games, while his rival Lionel Messi was 11 ahead of him.

At this point, according to Marca, Ronaldo made a bet with his Real team-mates.

Ronaldo is said to have bet that he would finish the season in possession of LaLiga’s Golden Boot.

After his four-goal haul at the weekend, the 33-year-old is second in the race for the top-scorer’s gong in Spain — one ahead of Luis Suarez and three behind Messi.

Both Real and Barca have nine league matches remaining, including May’s Clasico at the Nou Camp.
