A treat weekend for football fans with matches such as Madrid Derby, Der Klassiker, and Milan Derby ended with worries for Blaugranas and a healthy for Real Madrid. Atletico Madrid was undone by Real Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo Hattrick made him the joint top scorer in La Liga this season.
At the final whistle, Real Madrid progressed to the top of league table. They are currently 4 points ahead of Barcelona as the Catalans dropped points against Malaga a few hours back. Atletico Madrid is currently in the fifth position behind Sevilla and Villareal.
Since Zinedine Zidane became the in charge of the Bernabeu, Real Madrid is a much more improved side. They showed them as Real Madrid won it’s 11th UCL title. And they have been showing this since the start of this season. A number of Real stars such as Bale, Kroos, Morata, and Asensio were in great form. But what the Los Blancos side missed was the form of their all-time top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo.
Cristiano Ronaldo was in a very bad form since the start of the season. He was missing very simple chances of scoring and receiving a great amount of criticism from fans and pundits. And Cristiano perfectly strikes back against Atletico Madrid in the Madrid Derby last night. He scored a hattrick which made him all time top scorer in Madrid derby with 16 goals.
Although it was the 39th hattrick of his career and a rise after the fall. The question arises “Is Cristiano Ronaldo really back in form or it was luck last night?” Maybe he is back in his former form, but the visible point in this match was all his goals were not very extraordinary.
The first free-kick goal that he scored was completely due that deflection from Atletico Madrid defender. The second goal was a penalty, so it’s quite obvious that one doesn’t need to be in a great form to score a penalty. The third goal was a simple tap-in from a brilliant assist from the Welshman Gareth Bale. It was just a matter of luck last night.
