StoryFour down and on the hunt for five - Will Ronaldo Catch Messi?

Without a shadow of a doubt, Cristiano Ronaldo will go down in history as one of the best footballers to grace the field. The Portugal star recently claimed a fourth Ballon d’Or award after an incredible year that included a Champions League crown, a European Championship success and a World Club title – and he now sits just one World Player of the Year accolade behind Barcelona star and arch-rival Lionel Messi.

At 31 years old, Ronaldo’s time to claim the Ballon d’Or is running out but he is still capable of holding his own against the greatest players on the planet; as shown by his achievements this year.
While you could viably argue that Ronaldo was helped by Real Madrid’s success in the Champions League and Portugal’s triumph at Euro 2016 but at the end of the day, his influence in both competitions was clear for all to see and he certainly deserved to prosper on an individual basis.

StoryCristiano Ronaldo was Never a Replacement by Coach

Whenever Cristiano Ronaldo had to leave the pitch in the middle of a Liga match in the past, it was either because of injury or something, but, never was it done by his coach tactically.


However, the unthinkable happened yesterday versus Las Palmas when he was called back into the dug-out by Zinedine Zidane without any injury probably because the Blancos boss thought that some other player would give him more value on the pitch at that time.

StoryJAMES NOT HAPPY

James Rodriguez was not happy with the length of the stoppage time in the Villarreal game.
Rodriguez reckons Villarreal wanted to interrupt the game as much as possible during the first 90 minutes. But, the match officials did not keep a note of that and did not make up for that by making the stoppage time that much longer.

As per Rodriguez, the stoppage time must have been least a couple of minutes longer and if Madrid had got those extra couple of minutes, the winning goal was very much possible because they were clearly on top of Villarreal as the game was approaching the conclusion.
