The Portuguese became his club's all-time top scorer on Wednesday when he netted twice at Malmo in his team's 2-0 win in the Champions League. Ronaldo has 324 goals, one more than former Real captain Raul.
Speaking of Sunday's Madrid derby, Ronaldo (30) , who scored 61 goals in all competitions last season, said: “The derby is always a difficult game.
It's always complicated to win at Atletico. They are a top team but we are ready for them. I was surprised (Atletico) lost on Wednesday.” Real have not beaten Atletico in La Liga since their 2012-13 campaign.
