Cristiano Ronaldo has only scored one goal in 720 minutes played in the Spanish first division this season. Astonishing.
The forward was sidelined due to suspension for the first four fixtures after being dismissed and handed a five-match ban in the Spanish Super Cup first leg at the Camp Nou. He was not available to feature until Real’s fifth La Liga match.
Since then, Ronaldo has only found the back of the net against Getafe, with Madrid clinching a 2-1 win. That is something that had never happened to the Portuguese striker in over eight seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Only one equally poor balance comes to mind. In his first season after joining from Manchester United, Ronaldo failed to score from gameweek 5 to 12, but the striker missed six of those eight matches through injury.
