Can you imagine Cristiano Ronaldo going three matches for Real Madrid without scoring? This is exactly what will happen if the number 9 doesn’t put the ball at the back of the net when Los Blancos face Athletic Bilbao on Saturday evening.
Real Madrid are currently second behind Barcelona in La Liga standings and they could end up at the top of the table if Barcelona lose against Sevilla at the Camp Nou for the second time in one month.
Cristiano Ronaldo has seven goals to his name in nine La Liga appearances and he will be looking to extend his tally. He is four behind Gonzalo Higuain who won’t play on Saturday due to injury, and he is two above Karim Benzema who will receive a rare start against Athletic Bilbao.
Cristiano Ronaldo has had a good start to the year 2010 in terms of marketing; he has just started modeling officially for Armani.
In terms of popularity, Cristiano Ronaldo has hit new standards.
Aside from being the most iconic football star on the planet and the most popular sports personality on Facebook, Cristiano Ronaldo is now the greatest performer according to Castrol Rankings.
It will be putting some icing on the cake if Cristiano Ronaldo scores against Athletic Bilbao for Real Madrid on match-day 18 of La Liga.
What a great manner of celebrating his recent achievements that will be!
