Ronaldo of Real Madrid

Ronaldo starts off his season with a bang.

Real Madrid destroyed Real Zaragoza 0-6 away from home on the first day of La Liga season. Wonderful performance by all the players to say the least. Di Maria missed a sitter during the second half but that did not matter anyway.

What mattered was that Benzema looked superb, Kaka scored a wonderful goal, Marcelo was flawless and Ronaldo scored. Every player performed really well for Real Madrid last night. Next week we have the international break so it was really important to go to the break with a strong result.

Ronaldo scored 3 goals and rightly so, he has credited all 3 to the team rather than to himself. Pretty easy goals, but it was the pace of Ronaldo’s movement that made those goals look a bit too easy. Ronaldo has now scored 4 goals in 3 official games so far in 2011. Messi has scored 4 goals in 3 games so far in 2011. It is going to be another tight race between the two.

What I would really like is a similarly close fought race between Real Madrid and Barcelona for every trophythisseason.Ronaldocanscoregoals we all know that, I would not be surprised if he surpasses his 40 goal mark this season.

He looks fit and strong, strongest I would say. Ronaldo also thinks that Kaka is an important player for the team, I was glad that the whole team formed a hurdle around Kaka when he scored. May be they all wanted to show Mourinho that Kaka is a player that all of them want not to be sold.

Zaragoza did have some notable players missing due to injury but that should not dampen the spirits of Real Madrid supporters nor the players, it wasadifficultteambutRealMadridplayedatanotherlevel.Remember,lastseasonRealZaragoza
