With La Liga kicking off this weekend and Lionel Messi already on the mark with his brace against Elche it was time for Cristiano Ronaldo to step up to the mark and try and match his enemy goal for goal.
It looked as though Ronaldo wasn’t going to score as the game hit injury time and Real Madrid would have to settle for a 1 – 0 win against Cordoba – a team that have never won against Real Madrid away from home in the league.
Fortunately for Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid fans, he picked the ball up and unleashed a rocket from distance, which bounced in front of the keeper and into the back of the net.
The game finished Real Madrid 2 – 0 Cordoba, with goals coming from Karim Benzema on the 30th minute and this one by Cristiano Ronaldo in the first minute of stoppage time from long range.
Will Atletico Madrid retain the La Liga title this season, or are the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid too strong for them this year?
