Real Madrid striker
Ronaldo has said he will be doing all he can to overhaul Barcelona's
Samuel Eto'o as the Primera Liga's leading scorer in the final two games
of the season.
Ronaldo told a news conference: "It has been an odd season because I had
a run of eight goals when I didn't score, but I'm four goals behind him
and there are two games left so I'll be giving it all I can."
Eto'o is widely credited with having scored 24 goals this season which
puts him within a goal of Golden Shoe leader Thierry Henry who will have
no further opportunities to add to his tally as the English league
season is finished.
According to the Spanish Football League (LFP) Eto'o has scored 25 goals
because the referee reported that he got a slight touch to a shot from
team mate Deco in his side's 2-0 win over Real Mallorca in February.
Ronaldo is in third place in the scoring charts behind fellow Brazilian
Ricardo Oliveira of Real Betis, who has scored 21, and level with
Villarreal striker Diego Forlan who has notched up 20 since moving from
Manchester United at the start of the season.
Real host city rivals Atletico Madrid on Saturday and champions Barca
entertain third-placed Villarreal at the Nou Camp on Sunday.
