Cristiano skippers Madrid for first time in 171 official games

Cristiano Ronaldo has been handed the captain's armband for Sunday's meeting with Real Sociedad. It is the first time CR7 has skippered the side in 171 official matches for Real Madrid and a role he has only been given once before - in a pre-season friendly in Kuwait on 16th May 2012 which the Whites won 2-0.

Madrid's first captain Iker Casillas and deputy captain Gonzalo Higuaín both started on the bench against La Real while the team's third captain Sergio Ramos is serving a ban and Marcelo (the fourth captain), remains out injured - hence Mourinho's decision to hand Cristiano the armband.
