Can Ronaldo best Law’s record?

Cristiano Ronaldo will continue his quest to beat Denis Law’s Manchester United scoring record with a minimum of 8 games and a maximum of 12 (assuming that Manchester United reach the Champions League final) left to go after the Aston Villa game later today.

Ronaldo’s current stats make for fearsome reading – 34 goals so far in the season, including 25 goals in 25 league starts.


A goal a game could take him past 40 but it would take something extraordinarily special for him to get to even 40, let alone beat Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record of 44 goals or Denis Law’s record of 46 goals in a single season.

What do you think? Can Ronaldo rewrite Manchester United’s history and score 47 goals this season?
