This time it’s done. Facing Lyon, Cristiano Ronaldo offered himself a double, which allowed him to reach the 100 goals scored under the colors of Real Madrid. He confided after this match in an interview given to the Spanish daily Marca.
Finally! We were hoping for the 100th goal of Cristiano Ronaldo under the colors of Real Madrid for some matches already. He was expected to cross the bar of the 100 goals marked under the white jersey facing Villareal: He left Benzema, Kaka and Di Maria happy to sink the Yellow Submarine. It was therefore said that it would be for this weekend, facing the Real Sociedad: Still missed, since Cristiano Ronaldo had left the field without finding the path of the nets, insulting the opposing supporters who had reserved him a very special treatment ( Booed, he had unleashed them: “Will you do f ***, p ***” when it was released. But the brilliant Portuguese seemed not to suffer too much from these missed appointments, nor to worry about the day he would cross this honorary bar, in the image of the photos where we found Cristiano Ronaldo smiling at the training before the match against Lyon.
The reality of the terrain soon gave him reason, since the bar was reached after 24 minutes of play during the Champions League match against Lyon, won 2-0 by Real Madrid. His supersonic strike on a free kick left the porter Lyon Lloris stunned. The Portuguese even allowed to reoffend at 20 minutes of the end of the match, on penalty. Cristiano Ronaldo therefore scored 101 goals in 105 games played, hallucinating figures at this level. He reacted to the microphone of the Daily Madrid Marca: “I did not expect it to happen so soon …” I want to thank my partners and my coach, who gave me the opportunity to play and progress as a player and as a person. CR7 continues: “The main thing was to win the game.” The coach asked us to win and play well to qualify. “We made a good match against a good team, very tough.” And to the whimsical Portuguese to conclude: “At the moment, we do not compare to FC Barcelona.” We focus on our own goals, and for the time being, the goal was to qualify for the next round. 101 goals in 105 matches for Cristiano Ronaldo, a beautiful feat?
