He is one of the most famous and charismatic players in the game and whether or not you are a fan of Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, you surely have to admire all that he has achieved in football.
His current club are multiple winners of Spain’s La Liga and Europe’s Champions League and continue to challenge for all major trophies so that are a huge draw for the TV Cameras. Real are also prominent in bookmakers’ enhanced odds deals and many of these also focus on Ronaldo himself.
The Portuguese forward made his debut for Sporting Lisbon at the age of just 17 and he quickly came to the attention of a number of major clubs across Europe. His dribbling and skill on the ball were phenomenal and although his scoring record at club level in Portugal wasn’t particularly high, it wouldn’t be long before Sporting received a substantial bid for Ronaldo’s services.
The move came in 2003 when Cristiano crossed to Manchester United for a fee of £12.4Million which made him the most expensive teenager in history at the time. It was at Old Trafford that Ronaldo really developed into a World Class player and the Portuguese was behind many of the club’s major triumphs.
Six years later, he was on the move again to Real Madrid having left United with an overall goal scoring record of 118 goals from 292 games. Those are impressive stats for a man who didn’t play as a natural centre forward but he has since eclipsed those while playing in Spain. As of January 2017, Ronaldo is breaking all records as he currently comes in with a return of 383 goals in 372 matches. With a current club record of more than one goal every game, it’s no wonder that the bookmakers look to include Cristiano Ronaldo in a number of enhanced odds promotions.
Ronaldo made his full international debut for Portugal in August 2003 when his Portugal side beat Kazakhstan 1-0. His rise was rapid and he was subsequently included in the national squad that travelled to the European Championships and it was there that he scored his first senior goal, in a group match against eventual winners Greece.
Cristiano took the national captaincy between 2006 and 2012 and while his Portugal side were a threat at major tournaments, they were considered a one-man team and not good enough as a squad to claim a major trophy. All that changed in 2016 of course when the country won the European Championships, playing most of the final without Ronaldo who had sustained an injury.
As of January 2017, Cristiano Ronaldo’s record at full international level shows 68 goals from 136 games so once again, you can expect to see a number of enhanced odds built around the player whenever Portugal are in major tournament action.
Recent Scoring Record
Here is Ronaldo’s scoring record in major competitions from across the last three seasons.

While his record in the domestic cup competitions may not be quite so prolific, Ronaldo really comes alive in la Liga and in the Champions League where his record reaches up to that goal per game level. This is where we can expect to see more price boosts but what type of offers will we see?
A typical deal from a bookmaker may lift the price on Cristiano to score anytime during a match. This may come as a single bet or alternatively it may be listed as a double with Real to win the game as well. The promo may be listed for the Copa Del Rey, or possibly in the league where El Clasico pits Real against rivals Barca but more commonly, these enhanced Ronaldo promotions will come in the Champions League which gets greater exposure across Europe.
