Cristiano Ronaldo, Gonzalo Higuain and Karim Benzema have become the top scoring attacking front in Real Madrid history with 101 goals netted between them this season. They have improved on the numbers of the trios featuring Di Stefano and Puskas in the 1950s, or those from the legendary Quinta del Buitre, whose top scorer was Hugo Sanchez.
Real Madrid's season is being truly spectacular. The team tops the league table and will play the Champions League semifinals, have tallying an impressive 150 goals overall this campaign.

Cristiano Ronaldo is the team's top scorer this year with 49 strikes, only four shy of last season's 53. He is also a magnificent assist-man and Higuain and Benzema benefit most from his passing talents. The French striker has scored 28 goals this season and Higuain reached the centenary as a Madridista last weekend against Osasuna, with a total tally of 24 strikes this season.

The trio formed by Puskas, Di Stefano and Pepillo scored 95 goals in the 1959/60 season and helped the team win its fifth European Cup title that year. Three more attacking trios from the 1950s are amongst the top ten scoring attacking fronts in the history of the club. Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema and Higuain also appear lower on this ranking with the 92 strikes they netted in the 2010/11 season.
