Alfredo Di Stefano’s record of 18 Real Madrid goals in El Clasico matches against Barcelona has been matched by Cristiano Ronaldo.
The benchmark of 18 was set by the iconic Di Stefano, widely considered to be the greatest player in Madrid’s illustrious history.
The Portuguese international drew level with Di Stefano on Sunday by turning home from inside the six-yard box after Karim Benzema nodded a delivery from Toni Kroos across the face of goal against Barcelona on Sunday.
His effort cancelled out Luis Suarez’s opener at the Camp Nou, as Madrid attempted to stop the champions from finishing their La Liga season unbeaten.
