CRISTIANO RONALDO has this season scored two fewer goals than Luis Suarez despite having almost DOUBLE the number of shots.

 
The Real Madrid icon has netted 16 goals in La Liga this term and has smashed countless goalscoring records during his time at the Bernabeu.
 
Ronaldo came second in this year's Ballon d'Or, but many in the footballing world, including Lionel Messi, thought ex-Liverpool ace Suarez should have been on the shortlist and challenging for the gong.
 
And now Spanish newspaper Sport have added weight to that claim by revealing Ronaldo's alarming wastefulness in front of goal. 
 
They showed the Portuguese hasn't scored in ten of the 21 league games he's played in and only 40 per cent of his efforts hit the target.
 
Barcelona hitman Suarez has 18 goals - but from just 74 shots compared with Ronaldo's 135 efforts.
 
 
The newspaper ranked the top 100 players in world soccer, and Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez were all ranked ahead of Ronaldo.
 
Messi was No. 1, followed by Neymar and Suarez before Ronaldo came in at No. 4.
