REAL MADRID | RONALDO
Cristiano scores first free-kick in 23 attempts
The Real Madrid striker slammed home a free-kick to make it 3-0 after 39’.
It’s been a long time coming. Ronaldo put last season to bed scoring a free-kick against Getafe, but he hadn’t been able to celebrate one this season, until tonight. Coming into tonight he’d taken 22 free-kicks, all without success. But in the 39th minute of tonight’s game against Malmö Ronaldo stepped up on the left and blasted a free-kick past keeper Wiland, who might have been able to do more, but could only watch as the ball flew past him into the corner.
