Diego Costa: better than Ronaldo
David G. Medina. Granada 10/31/2013

Diego Costa has not had an easy time of late. Away from his Atlético duties, he has had to deal with the tough decision of abandoning the Brazil national side to join the 'La Roja' cause. Despite this difficult time, the Atlético striker has still managed to produce the goods in every game.
Apart from Costa's spectacular record for Atlético, the striker is beating records for fun and only two players this century have been able to score more goals in as many games. Costa is the current Pichichi in La Liga and his record of 11 goals in 10 games has only been achieved by Leo Messi and Samuel Eto’o. The Argentine, who has scored eight goals this season, scored 13 in the first 10 games in the last two seasons. Cameroon international Eto’o achieved the same feat playing for the Catalan side.
Diego Costa's record of 11 goals is something that even Cristiano Ronaldo has not been able to better since he joined Real Madrid. However, the Portuguese did manage to equal the tally on two occasions – 2010/11 and 2012/13 -, but this is somewhat surprising given that we are talking about a player who has been considered one of the best in the world for some time.
Another superstar player, Radamel Falcao, who is now at Monaco, has also failed to beat Costa's record. The Colombian netted 10 times in as many games last season, also for Atlético.
