Match Highlights: Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) vs Sporting Gijon

C-Ron is really motoring at the minute.

The Portuguese forward was again Real Madrid’s standout performer in his side’s 3-1 win over Sporting Gijon on Saturday night as the world’s most expensive footballer again looked to dispel rumours that he is a one-man show by setting up Real’s first two goals after Los Blancos had fallen behind.

Gijon keeper Juan Pablo failed to hold a free-kick from Cristiano Ronaldo, and Rafael Van der Vaart controlled with his hand and scored with his left foot, to the fury of the visiting defenders. Two minutes after the controversial equaliser, Xabi Alonso made it 2-1 from close range after Ronaldo had headed on a Guti corner.
