After failing to get on the scoresheet last time out against Sporting Gijon, Cristiano Ronaldo returned to goalscoring ways again with a brilliant brace at Getafe last night. As Lionel Messi is heaped with praise following his recent run, it is worthwhile pointing out that Ronaldo has now claimed seven goals in his last six games which is not too shoddy.
Ronaldo’s first was a delicious free-kick on 13 minutes and the second came late in the first half with a blistering effort that wooshed past the Getafe keeper. In trademark style, Ronaldo could well have scored more in the second half and was still threatening the home side’s goal in the final minutes.
