It was another frustrating night for Real Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo.
In a shock which few saw coming, especially after Los Blancos won 2-1 at the Camp Nou last weekend in El Clasico, Real were beaten 2-0 at Wolfsburg in their Champions League quarterfinal first leg.
For Ronaldo, nothing seemed to work in Germany.
He just couldn’t find any joy against Wolfsburg’s well-organised back line, despite shifting positions during the game.
He started on the left and moved to the right before operating for a time in the middle, but wherever he went he was diligently closed down by the hard-working hosts.
Ronaldo also took a bit of a kicking in Germany.
During the second half, the TV cameras looked closely at the state of Cristiano’s socks, which had a big hole in them for all the challenges that came his way.
