Threatened by Messi’s return? Misfiring Cristiano Ronaldo lashed the ball away in frustration at final whistle v Osasuna
- January 10, 2014
It’s the worst kept secret in football – Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are locked in a goal-war.
The pair often match up goal for goal on Liga matchdays, clear evidence that they’re very deliberately competing against each other.
Ronaldo made hay while Messi recuperated from injury back in Argentina, scoring goals for fun and clearly enjoying his nemesis’ absence.
With Messi returning to action this week – and scoring a brace – Ronaldo’s body language was notably more tense during Madrid’s match against Osasuna last night.
Cristiano missed a host of chances he would normally tuck away with his eyes closed, and was so intent on making amends that he returned straight to the centre circle without celebrating with Jese after setting him up for the night’s second goal.
By the end of the game, Ronaldo cut a frustrated figure, lashing the ball away in anger at full-time – in spite of Madrid winning 2-0.
