Ronaldo bagged his second hattrick in four days and took his tally to eight goals this season with a well taken hattrick at the Bernabeu. We were consistent in defence and did a good job.
A statement released by Real on Wednesday read: “Following the tests carried out on Sergio Ramos today in the Sanitas La Moraleja University Hospital, the player has been diagnosed with dislocated acromioclavicular joint in his left shoulder”.
It was pointed out to Ronaldo that Madrid didn’t start that well under Rafa Benitez, including some mixed pre-season results, but the forward dismissed the summer.
Real Madrid returns to league play this weekend against Granada on Saturday.
Ronaldo and Benzema were responsible for a seven of the 11 goals scored in those games, and they managed to transfer that fine form from domestic to European competition.
“He is among the best, and I can not say the best, because I have coached some very good players”. “I know Cristiano’s level and value”, said Benítez.
It seems that never a game goes by when Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t manage to send at least one record toppling, and last night’s Champions League run-out against Shakhtar Donetsk was no exception.
“I’m content. It’s an honour to be in this position”.
Ronaldo’s hat-trick against Shakhtar Donetsk has prompted Benitez to declare that the Portuguese is unquestionably at the pinnacle of the football world.
However, the former Liverpool and Chelsea boss was also keen to stress the importance of keeping their fourth consecutive clean sheet against a talented Shakhtar side. “In the first half we struggled for rhythm, and three players getting injured is bad news for us”. “I want to score more goals too. I have to thank the team, who help me a lot”, AS quotes Ronaldo as saying. “The only negative was the injuries to the three players we had to substitute”.
“He had a spasm in the calf muscle”. I am not anxious about the injuries, we have had few up until now.
