Finishing second every year is not fun. Such was the case for Cristiano since he arrived in Madrid in 2009. But come the 2011-2012 season, his and Madrid's fortunes were finally do for a change. After notching 46 league goals and 60 goals in all competitions, Ronaldo and Madrid were finally able to put Messi and Barcelona in their rear view mirror. Their final victory came against Mallorca on the last match day of the season, in which CR netted his 46th La Liga goal. With this he became the first player ever to score against every team in the league in a single season. Mourinho and his men took 100 points in all, en route to lifting the title. Messi and Co. were forced to wait another season to try and take back the crown.
