Ronaldo scores twice as Madrid opens with 3-0 win over APOEL

16 September, 2017, 15:18 | Author: Valerie Burke

The last time Bale faced Rueda was in a Spanish league game and he scored a hat-trick as Real Madrid thrashed Rueda's then-club Real Valladolid 4-0 in 2013.

Real Madrid now sit seventh in La Liga with just five points from a possible nine.

"No one's apologised. Ronaldo hasn't apologised and Real Madrid still haven't apologised".

"I would have liked Morata to stay, but you have to understand that he wanted to leave to play more and we respect that".

Tottenham are not assuming Real Madrid will finish first in Champions League Group H, according to Mauricio Pochettino Madrid, crowned European champions in three of the last four seasons, are top seeds in a fiercely competitive group that also includes Spurs, Borussia Dortmund and APOEL.

Reigning Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo scored twice as two-time defending champions Madrid eased past the Cypriot visitors and Ronaldo and Real Madrid have set their sights on a third successive Champions League crown following the win. "With his ability we always want to have him available".

"He's the soul of the team, he's fundamental for us and he's in better shape than ever".

Sergio Ramos scored the third goal at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, where Madrid hasn't lost a group-stage game in nearly eight years.

"Bit by bit we're seeing the player Gareth is".

Ronaldo's return boosts Real's attack after a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to Levante on Saturday, their second successive home draw which left them trailing early Liga leaders Barcelona and Real Sociedad by four points.

Real Madrid will be buzzing to get their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo back in the team for this fixture. Skipper Sergio Ramos added a third as the holders made a routine start to this season's campaign.

"Playing with all these great players we possess [at Real Madrid] pushes you forward and helps you to become a better player".

The under-21 Spain global has started the season in fine form - scoring four goals in his last six games and his side will be hoping he can return to action as soon as possible.
