Messi Soar, Ronaldo Down in La Liga
For the first time in his career at Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo failed to score in three La Liga season opener matches. Finally, Ronaldo barren despite Los Blancos 2-0 win over Espanyol at Santiago Bernabeu, early this morning GMT.
Previously, Ronaldo had to undergo a four-game suspension La Liga. However, this Portugal international striker has appeared for the last three Real Madrid match against Real Betis, Deportivo Alaves, and Espanyol.
Until now, the longest time Ronaldo scored his goal in the new season La Liga takes 255 minutes. It happened to La Liga 2010-2011 season.
While last season, the 32-year-old took just six minutes to score in La Liga’s new season. This season, everything is different for the former Manchester United player.
Although Los Blancos have rediscovered their performance in La Liga, not so with Ronaldo. In fact, his statistics are the worst in terms of scoring efforts.
Ronaldo Unleashes 22 Gunless Goal Crashes
Ronaldo is the player who fired the most (22 times) without even scoring. Of the 22 shots Ronaldo released, only four of them that led to the goal.
For a classmate of Ronaldo, the above statistics are clearly surprising. However, in the Champions League, statistics of the former Sporting Lisbon player this season is more moncer with four goals from two games.
This situation is inversely proportional to his rival, Lionel Messi is brilliant with Barcelona. Messi now tops the list of La Liga top scorer with 11 goals from 7 matches.
