After completing his five-match ban, imposed after his red card on against Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo will make his 2017/18 LaLiga bow against Real Betis.
Thirty eight days have passed, meaning Real Madrid’s talisman has missed the matches against Depor, Valencia, Levante and Real Sociedad.
During that time, Los Blancos have missed the Portuguese, especially in the two draws against Valencia and Levante, where a lack of marksmanship meant that Zinedine Zidane’s men couldn’t achieve maximum points.
Even the No.9 debate has been resurrected in his absence but now Ronaldo is back to put both controversies – the lack of goals and the need for a striker – to bed.
That’s because he’s not only the great star of the team, but also a great scorer, who never fails.
In 396 matches, he has 407 goals and despite the domestic penalty, he already has three goals with Madrid this season; one against Barcelona in the Super Cup and two in the Champions League against APOEL.
He might be a late arrival in the league, but he’s ready to settle a few scores.
