After being absent in Real Madrid's victory at Málaga las weekend, Cristiano Ronaldo returned to the starting XI on Wednesday against Athletic Club Bilbao equalling his personal record of consecutive fixtures scoring with the club.
His late backheel equalised the score against a well organised Athletic opposition which had taken a first half lead at the Santiago Bernabéu with the opener of Iñaki Williams.
With this strike the former Manchester United player has reached his twelfth successive match finding the back of the net, in this streak the international Portuguese has beaten the opposition 22 times.
Wednesday's equaliser was his 24th. goal in this 2017-18 LaLiga, which mean he is now five strikes behind Lionel Messi in the fight for the Pichichi and six behind Liverpool's Mohamed Salah in the Golden Shoe race with five matches to go.
Cristiano Ronaldo's has reached this consecutive number of games scoring at least one goal in front of Real Sociedad (three), Paris Saint-Germain (two), Betis (one), Alavés (two), Getafe (two), Paris Saint-Germain (one), Eibar (two), Girona (four), Juventus (two), Atlético de Madrid (one), Juventus (one) and last Wednesday against Athletic Club Bilbao (one).
