Real Madrid forward, Arda Guler, achieved an impressive milestone on Sunday, May 19, during his side's penultimate La Liga match against Villarreal.

Guler has been in scorching form as the season draws to a close despite being sidelined due to injury and selection issues for the initial nine months of his time at Santiago Bernabeu.

He recently bagged a brace in Madrid's 4-4 draw at the Estadio de la Ceramica to underline his purple patch since Carlo Ancelotti began handing him game time.

Arda Guler's insane La Liga stat

He has since scored five goals in his last five games, bringing his total for the season to six.

Remarkably, in his 10 La Liga appearances, he has scored all six of his shots on target, averaging a goal every 63 minutes and finding the net with every 2.5 shots, as reported by Football Espana.

Comparing Arda Guler to Lamine Yamal

With this, the 'Turkish Messi' surpassed Barcelona’s rising star, Lamine Yamal, who has five goals in the league.

The comparison between Guler and Yamal is striking, especially since Guler missed much of the first half of the season due to injury. Guler’s scoring rate in the league is impressive.

According to Transfermarkt, he has scored a goal every 63 minutes and played a total of 373 minutes in the league.

In contrast, Yamal takes 427 minutes to score a goal, with more than 2,000 minutes of playing time.

While these numbers are impressive for Guler, they do not tell the whole story, as Yamal also has eight assists, making his total goal contributions in the league 13.

However, he achieved this after playing 2,134 minutes.

Real Madrid legend lauds Arda Guler

In an earlier publication, Sports Brief reported that Arda Guler's stellar rise at Real Madrid has garnered widespread acclaim, with even club legends acknowledging his remarkable talent.

Esteemed figures like legendary midfielder José María 'Guti' Gutiérrez Hernández have lauded Guler's performances, with Guti declaring the young star 'much better' than himself.
