Cristiano Ronaldo made history yet again on Saturday.

In Real Madrid's four goal thrashing of Eibar, Ronaldo notched his 30th goal of the season becoming the first player to tally 30 goals in six straight La Liga campaigns. The Portuguese star stands alone when it comes to prolific goal-scoring consistency in Spain. Even Lionel Messi's best is four seasons of 30.

Ronaldo's lowest scoring season in the league came in his first with Real Madrid. The Dark Invader only scored 26 times in La Liga but rippled the net on seven more occasions in the UEFA Champions League.

Ronaldo has been dominant since obtaining the No. 7 shirt at Real Madrid. Over the course of six not-yet-completed seasons, Ronaldo has scored 229 goals. And although he may not possess the skills at 31 years old that he showcased at 26 years old, Ronaldo still has a knack for electrifying 80,000 Madridistas at once.

Over Ronaldo's six seasons above the 30 goal mark, he's flaunted a few iconic, superhuman strikes. Below, we picked out Ronaldo's five most draw-dropping finishes in La Liga:

1. Osasuna - April 26, 2014

osasuna 4/26/14

2. Atletico Madrid - April 11, 2012

3. Rayo Vallecano - February 26, 2012

4. Valencia - May 4, 2014

5. Getafe - September 22, 2013
