The Performance of Cristiano Ronaldo against Granada
It should be about Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese forward looked set to turn into the record-breaking top goal scorer for Real Madrid, requiring three goals against Granada to surpass Raul’s record on Saturday. Be that as it may, he couldn’t do it. Rather, it took a Karim Benzema header to spare the day for Los Blancos. Ronaldo scored five in this installation last season – a 9-1 win at the Bernabeu. Granada are a vastly improved side now than they were in those days, however, and the Andalusians brought about their hosts a lot of issues in a first half which saw them disastrous to see a decent goal mistakenly prohibited for offside.
Watch the The performance of Cristiano Ronaldo against Granada in La-Liga:
Real Madrid continued looking to Ronaldo, yet this was a poor execution by the home team. Without the initiative and dispersion of Sergio Ramos in defense, without Gareth Bale’s pace and the innovativeness of James Rodriguez, Madrid drudged toward the evening warmth. Ronaldo saw two or three penalty requests turned down, disappointed with two manageable free-kicks and was for the most part off point with his shooting, approaching once in the second half from separation when he constrained Granada goalkeeper Andres Fernandez into a fine spare. Cristiano Ronaldo had the ball at his feet in an attacking position when the ref blew the last shriek and he impacted a shot in disappointment over the crossbar before gazing at the ground. Having scored eight goals in his last two games to move to inside of two of Raul’s record 323 Madrid goals, he was not able to add to that in this match and seemed anything besides content with himself.
Goals for Ronaldo come in a wide range of form, obviously, and it is just a matter of time before he breaks Raul’s record. Against Athletic Bilbao at San Mames on Wednesday, he will have another chance.
