A titanic clash will shake ground on Saturday, with Real Madrid hosting Barcelona at the Bernabeu in La Liga. ‘El Clasico‘ arrived at a prime time for the Portuguese forward.
Cristiano Ronaldo has found the back of the net in each of his last four games for Real Madrid, against Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla, Al Jazira and Gremio.
His best goalscoring streak so far this season had previously been in two games in succession, and now he has scored in four successive games, signifying a total of five goals.
He underwent a comparable circumstance in the closing phases of last season. In Real Madrid’s last four matches of the season, scoring seven times against Sevilla, Celta, Malaga, and Juventus. The last two were decisive in Madrid’s quest to lift La Liga and Champions League trophies.
In the event that he manages to beat in-form Barca shot-stopper Ter Stegen on Saturday, Ronaldo will drag out his breathtaking run of form. Goals in five matches, something that hasn’t occurred since 2014. In those days, he oversaw 20 goals in 12 straight matches.
Barcelona happens to be among the Portuguese striker’s most loved adversaries: 17 goals in 31 ‘Clasico’ games. A noteworthy count which comes in fifth behind Sevilla (27), Getafe (21), Atlético (21) and Celta (20).
