Cristiano Ronaldo ended his goal drought season with 5-goal haul
The Portuguese star scored a 20-moment first-half hat-trick and in doing as such broke a critical club record – more on that later. Next up, he put a goal on a plate for Benzema before sacking his fourth and Madrid’s fifth in the second half. Eight games, they said. Counting friendlies, obviously. Also, just two genuine team matches. Be that as it may, to try and go one La Liga match without discovering the net is disturbing for Ronaldo, a player who, alongside that Argentine chap at the Nou Camp, has helped reconsideration tip top goal scoring standards.
Seven minutes is all it took to halt any pressure from developing in any way, Ronaldo running onto a rich Luka Modric go before twisting it conveniently inside the far post. The second was a penalty. The third, turning home a cross from Gareth Bale. Not that there was a help dry spell, but rather he turned supplier for Benzema as Madrid went 4-0 up in the first half and Espanyol’s players understood the match was genuinely up. Ronaldo wasn’t done, however, and a lightning counter finished with Bale setting him up for a straightforward fourth and after that Lucas Vazquez teeing him in for a far-fetched fifth. The second five-goal haul of his profession.
A true Real Madrid legend, Raúl’s record will be route in Cristiano Ronaldo’s rear-view mirror when he’s done at the Bernabeu, and it’s going to take something superhuman to ever touch his last aggregate. The Portuguese hadn’t netted since a strike amid a pre-season neighborly against Manchester City back in July, eminently coming up clear as Madrid could make draw 0-0 against Sporting on the opening day of the season.
Toward the End, Fans are a delight as Ronaldo ended his goal drought season.
