Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo has been playing some of his best football since joining Real Madrid last season. Ronaldo has already scored 14 goals in just 12 matches in La Liga. Overall, the former Manchester United star has found the back of the net 18 times in just 19 games in all competitions.
Ronaldo had a very productive first season in Madrid but unfortunately the club failed to win any titles due to injuries which affected both Kaka and Ronaldo throughout the season. Now with Jose Mourinho in charge and Cristiano healthy and playing at a high level, Los Blancos will attempt to end their run of league defeats against rivals Barca. The absence of Kaka has not been felt this season due to Ronaldo’s form, Mourinho’s ability to motivate his squad and get the best out of his players as well as the addition of quality players such as Mesut Özil.
Mourinho will be looking to defeat Barcelona again after succeeding in doing so while in charge of Inter last season on the road to a Champions League triumph. Ronaldo’s performance will be key and it will be interesting to see whether Ronaldo can continue his scoring run and find the back of the net against the Catalan club.
