Real Madrid maintain their distance away with rival Barcelona by another victory over Mallorca last night. The close winning of score 1-2 helped them to gain 3 points, and keep them save by 8 points from Barcelona, who will face Real Betis tonight.
Real Madrid 2 goals came late from Gonzalo Higuain (72nd) and Callejon (84th), after left behind by the host Mallorca who score the first goal in the first half.
Cristiano Ronaldo wasn’t on his best performance that night, and played the first half below average. But d so did the other players. Callejon goal was consider lucky, after the ball bounced ahead him when there was a bit of chaos in the penalty area. He took the chance to take the shot, and it was a good call.
Anyway, here are the pictures from Cristiano Ronaldo on the match :
Cristiano Ronaldo and his duo partner Gonzalo Higuain showed an impressive performance during La Liga match against Athletico Bilbao, at Santiago Bernabeu. Each of them managed to score 1 goal for Los Galacticos. The victory 5-1 to Bilbao kept their 1 point difference from Barcelona, who won 3-2 against Sevilla on the same day.
The first goal for Real Madrid was in 22nd minute, when Fernando Amorebieta made a handball at the penalty box, which caused them a red card, playing with just 10 player for the rest of the match. Cristiano was the executor, and he succeded in netting the ball, ahead from Bilbao with 1-0.
But 4 minutes before the first half over, Bilbao made their first goal, and it boosted their confidence. The score ended in 1-1 in the first half.
The Whites started to get panic. If they didn’t get full 3 points on this match, they will have to forget the La liga title. Pellegrini changed the strategy by putting Kaka and also Benzema on the field. His strategy worked well, and it showed with a nice header from Higuain on 73rd minute.
Higuain’s goal injected more spirits to the Whites. 7 minutes later, Sergio Ramos created a nice overlapping which ended with a shot that add the points to Madrid with 3-1. A minute later, Benzema showed his skill by scoring another goal, and it killed the hopes for Bilbao to narrowing their score with their host.
And it seemed that Los Blancos was on fire that night, as Marcello scored one more goal for the Spanish Giant, just 1 minute before the game ended, with the result 5-1 for the host. That was a nice closure for the goals party at Santiago Bernabeu.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s dream to lift the Champions League trophy at the Santiago Bernabeu in his first year as a Real Madrid player is dead, dead and buried.
Los Blancos could only draw 1-1 against Lyon and they thus lost on aggregate;
Now Cristiano Ronaldo blames Gonzalo Higuain’s ineffectiveness and selfishness during the match.
After the Portuguese superstar opened the score sheet in the early stages of the match, Argentine international Gonzalo Higuain had two glorious opportunities to increase Real Madrid’s lead before the half time whistle was up.
Somehow, the striker horrifically wasted his chances, leaving Los Blancos with more job to do under pressure and anxiety.
What Cristiano Ronaldo is presently mad about especially is the fact that Gonzalo Higuain didn’t pass the ball when he should have done it.
Ronaldo singled out two separate chances, which came at the 27th and at the 58th minute, as moments where Gonzalo Higuain should have passed the ball for Cristiano Ronaldo to finish Real Madrid’s move with a goal.
CR9’s anger against Higuain is surely not going to seize just yet. Already, there was a sense of rivalry between these two as Argentina’s Higuain revealed his strong desire to win the Pichichi.
Now Cristiano Ronaldo has slammed the striker for playing with individualism against Lyon.
The reality now is that the entire Real Madrid squad has been affected by a Champions League exit. The team’s spirit is now divided.

On Saturday evening at the Santiago Bernabeu, it was sweet, it was entertaining; in one word, it was awesome as Real Madrid hammered Real Zaragoza with six goals.
There was a double for Higuain and Van der Vaart, while Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo also got a piece of the pie.
(In Cristiano Ronaldo Fanâ€™s Video Gallery, you can watch the highlights of Real Madridâ€™s 6-0 demolition of Real Zaragoza. In addition, there is a video highlighting the unique performance of Cristiano Ronaldo v Real Zaragoza.)
Actually, Gonzalo Higuain opened the scoring sheet inside three minutes. The Argentine striker beat the offside trap before shooting low from a tight angle to beat Real Zaragozaâ€™s goalkeeper.
Van der Vaart added the second on 26 minutes and the third a minute later. In a blink of an eye, Real Madrid were already 3-0 up.
Real Zaragoza were never dominant throughout and Higuain again lashed out for his double of the night after an excellent solo piece of work. 4-0 at half time; Los Blancos were flying high and on course to closing the gap against Barcelona to two points.
Real Madridâ€™s number 9, Cristiano Ronaldo, had a moment of his own four minutes into the second period:
The Portuguese winger controlled the ball in the penalty box with quite a lot of precision before firing the ball past the goal line with his left foot to score Real Madridâ€™s fifth goal in the match before Karim Benzema completed his brace twenty minutes from time.
Real Madridâ€™s 6-0 hammering of Real Zaragoza put Los Blancos on 37 points in La Liga after match-day 15; they now have the same goal difference like Barcelona.
Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored four goals in his last three appearances for Real Madrid. He is on course to winning the Pitchichi honor as he has 7 goals to his name in La Liga top scorers chart.
However, he is well behind in seventh behind players like David Villa, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Roberto Soldado or even Gonzalo Higuain.
