Telmo Zarraonandia still has the best goalscoring average in a League season with his 38 goals in 30 League matches in the 1950-51 season (1.26 goals per match) and in one complete season that of 1950-51, with 46 goals in 36 League and Copa matches (1.27 goals per match). European Competition goals cannot be added to these statistics, as they did not take place until the 1955-56 season.

It’s evident that the player Cristiano Ronaldo has scored the highest number of goals in a single League season, 40 goals but in 38 matches, and if we also add the goals scored in the Copa, he has scored a total of 47, but just as we had mentioned last week, Zarra’s goalscoring average is better in terms of goals scored per match, despite the contrary affirmations made by the newspaper that awards the Pichichi Trophy, and Zarra still has the best average of goals scored per minute as well.

Zarra played in 30 ninety-minute matches, resulting in an average of 71.05 minutes between goal and goal. Ronaldo, however, has played in 31 complete encounters and in another three but not during the whole match, coming to a total of 2,958 minutes, with a goalscoring average of a goal per 73.95 minutes. Officially, on the other hand, and as mentioned on Real Madrid’s website, he has played for 3,053 minutes, which means his average goes up to 76.32 minutes between goal and goal.

To be kind with the organizing newspaper, even if Ronaldo had scored 41 goals, the goalscoring average per minute would be 72.14 and if Real Madrid’s official statistics are taken into account, this would be 74.46. Despite the typographic boasting employed, in no case has Zarra’s record been beaten.
