The Madrid press noted last week that Cristiano Ronaldo, by his standards, was in a bit of a slump!


Ronaldo, before today’s trip to Espanyol, had not scored a goal since Real Madrid’s pre-season win over Manchester City in July.

A couple of goalless games with Portugal accentuated that poor run and Ronaldo seemed more intent on rolling out his new fragrance rather than scoring goals.

Until Real Madrid rocked up to Espanyol and absolutely destroyed Espanyol 6-0 with Ronaldo scoring five!

Ronaldo claimed a hat-trick within the opening half-an-hour. Had four by half-time and then added two in the final half an hour at Power8 Stadium.

Real Madrid are now top of La Liga, at least until Barcelona play at Atletico Madrid tonight.

But, leaving aside the league table at this early stage of the season, its a time to congratulate Ronaldo on becoming all-time La Liga top goal scorer for Real Madrid.

No mean feat, when you consider the quality of strikers that have come before Ronaldo at the Bernabeu…
