Ronaldo still more in the legend!

Cristiano Ronaldo surpassed the 800 career goal mark and his brace enabled Manchester United to beat Arsenal (3-2) on Thursday night at Old Trafford.

Cristiano Ronaldo will soon be the undisputed number 1. If he exceeded Pelé’s number of goals last March, the Portuguese is not yet, according to some statisticians, the top scorer in football history, still remaining behind Josef Bican, an Austro-Hungarian author of 805 achievements. But “CR7” is precisely 801 goals since Thursday evening!

The poster for the 14th day of the Premier League between Manchester United and Arsenal, on the Old Trafford side, gave Ronaldo a little more history, as he hit the 800 career goal mark early in the second half, on a serve from Marcus Rashford (52nd). As a reminder, he is already the top scorer in the selections with 115 goals with his Seleçao.

Ronaldo far from Messi

Emile Smith-Rowe opened the scoring for the Gunners, on a very strange goal, since David De Gea was dying on his line (13th). Bruno Fernandes then equalized to reward the domination of Mancun (44th). And if Martin Odegaard quickly equalized before the hour mark (54th), Fred obtained a penalty which allowed the number 7 of the Red Devils to restore the advantage to his team and to go to 801. That is 45 more units. than Lionel Messi.

The new Ronaldesque exploit thus allows the formation of Michael Carrick, soon led by Ralf Rangnick (arrived in the morning in the North West of England and present in the stands), to climb to 7th position in the standings, at 2 lengths Arsenal, 5th. The top 4 is only 3 points away for United.
