Real Madrid is the biggest club in Europe, a unique institution in the world that has dominated football at all levels since the last century. But to be the greatest you need more than players, you need LEGENDS, men and women who proudly carry your shield and also make a difference. And for that, there is nothing better than a good scorer. This week on the Campus Experience blog we are going to talk about the best scorers in the history of Real Madrid. From players who are still active to others who marked the club’s history decades ago.

Join us on this journey of legends!


“The best footballer of all time”

That was said of Don Alfredo Di Stefano, a unique footballer, who did everything well, from defending to attacking, from passing to scoring, a total player. He changed football as it was known at that time and was also the best example to look at for thousands of Madrid boys and girls.

He won no more and no less than 5 European Cups, a feat equal to very few players. He was the winner of 2 Ballon d’Or, one in 1957 and another in 1959. But in addition, he is the only player in the world awarded a “Super Ballon d’Or”, which was awarded to him in 1989.

But it is in the scoring facet where his football stood out the most, since Don Alfredo won no more and no less than 5 Pichichi Trophies, scoring more than 308 goals, which accredits him as one of the great scorers in the history of LaLiga.


“A symbol of Real Madrid”

There are certain players in the history of a club who do not need an introduction, their career and titles guarantee them. Raul Gonzalez Blanco is one of these one-of-a-kind players of his. An emblem for Real Madrid until it became almost part of the shield.

With 741 games played, he is currently the player who has played the most games wearing the Real Madrid shirt, a fact that illustrates his greatness and also enhances his legend.

With a scoring instinct like very few, Raúl is the third top scorer in the club’s history, with 323 goals. But in addition to a unique career as a scorer, we must also highlight his collection of trophies, including 3 UEFA Champions Leagues, 6 Leagues and 2 Intercontinental Cups.

In addition, Raúl is currently coach of Real Madrid Castilla and continues to make history with our club.


“History made and history to be made”

Now we will talk about the only player from this select list of scorers who is still active in our club, Karim Benzema, one of the best strikers of all time.

With 327 goals, he is already the second top scorer in our entire history and also one of the most beloved players of all the fans. He is capable of seemingly impossible things on the field and of leadership that has made him our current captain. Karim is much more than a goalscorer, he is a team player, someone to give the ball to in difficult moments and a true example of the values of Real Madrid.

His track record as a white player is also impressive, since we are talking about a 5-time UEFA Champions League winner, 4-time LaLiga winner and 4-time Club World Cup winner. Some numbers that make us realize how privileged we are to still be able to see him play on our team.


“The king of goal”

Now we come to first place, to the top scorer in our entire history, to the person who has scored more than 450 goals with the white shirt, to the legend of world football: Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese is already part of our history and will always be remembered as one of the best players to wear the Real Madrid shirt. In the 9 seasons that he played for our club he gave us unique moments, like that impossible “chilena” in Turin or one of the goals in the final of the “décima” in Lisbon against Atlético de Madrid.

But in addition to being one of the greatest predators in the area of all time, Cristiano is also one of the most successful players in our history, with 4 UEFA Champions Leagues, 3 European Super Cups, 3 Club World Cups, 2 Leagues and 2 King’s Cups. In addition to lifting a Eurocup with his national team, Portugal and being the second player in history with the most Ballon d’Ors, with a total of 5.
