Real Madrid emphatic 7-1 victory over Celta Vigo; Ronaldo shines with his four goals

Real Madrid 7-1 Celta Vigo

No matter if Real Madrid is winning titles these days or not, or if they are anyway looking to take away any big silverware this season, they have always been in the news for their firing forward line and this time too when everyone is talking about Ronaldo’s recent media statement where he grossly presented himself way better than anyone else in the side, this Portuguese guy did it again. He scored a four-goal haul in the last 7-1 crushing victory over Celta Vigo at home. It was the first time Real were paying in home ground after shocking 1-0 defeat to Atletico and expectedly when they entered into the field whole crowd hooted them for the way they were overcome by the city mate. But anyways, 31-year-old former Manchester United forward was not in a mood to give it away that easy and he almost devastated the Eduardo Berizzo defense. Although, first half was rather a nail biting one when none of the side could manage to score the net except Pepe who just hit the touchline before the half time.

Second half was the one to look for where Ronaldo scored four goals in 25 minutes to take his side at invincible position; his tally this season has now touched 252 goals in just 228 La Liga games! Then, Jese Rodriguez and Gareth Bale added some cherries to their lead and fans started bucking up their side. Looking at this performance, manager Zidane said, “I will stick with his performance. It’s part of football that the fans whistle sometimes, not just Cristiano. It is like that. These are demanding fans who know the game well and always want more from their players. That is good to improve, to do more, and we always need to do more.

“Then, you all know Cristiano — he is capable of putting in four. Few can do that. He is unique. It is unique. It is something that just he has. You say I hit it well … maybe from closer in, and I never scored four goals, so I don’t know the feeling. Few players can have that feeling. He is at Madrid, he is strong, he is able to score goals in about 30 minutes. I cannot explain more than that. I am happy when I see him scoring goals.”

Adding about the change in mood of the crowd and how they began applauding home side, 43-year-old Frenchman added, “There was something said at half-time, of course, but in the first half the opponent played too. They are a good team. We knew it would be difficult to play well for 90 minutes. In the second half we came out very strong, pressed more up front, and then always when you score a goal it is easier.”
