Cristiano Ronaldo collected his third consecutive Pichichi award on Monday after finishing the 2014/15 season as La Liga's top scorer with 48 league goals.

My third Pichichi award! Proud to be the best scorer of La Liga. Thank you all.

The Real Madrid superstar has 19 already this season, only one less than current top scorer Luis Suarez.

But that doesn't tell the whole story. According to Jesus Balseiro of AS, Ronaldo has scored in just 48.2 percent of Real Madrid's matches in 2015/16—dropping below the 50 percent mark for the first time since joining Real in 2009.

What's all the more staggering is that Ronaldo's goals have earned Los Blancos a grand total of zero points this season.

Ronaldo has scored 30 goals in all competitions, but all have come in comfortable victories, while he has failed to find the net when the team have dropped points against Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Athletic Bilbao, Sevilla, Villarreal and Valencia.

So much for being the star man.
