Madrid crying out for Cristiano Ronaldo

October 6, 2016
It may be something of a no-brainer to point out that Real Madrid are better off with Cristiano Ronaldo fit and firing, but the extent of which demonstrates just how important it is for Los Blancos that the winger finds some form.

Six seasons of blasting in 50 goals, contributing over a third of Real’s total strikes in the process, puts Ronaldo head and shoulders above his teammates in terms of making an impact at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

When the Portuguese star gets his name on the scoresheet, the capital club claim a LaLiga win ratio of 84 percent, yet when Ronaldo doesn’t score that figure falls dramatically to 54 percent.

This finding is pretty constant throughout the attacker’s Blancos career; as the side didn’t lose a game in which Ronaldo had scored until 2013, whilst they won just seven of the 16 matches that he drew a blank in during 2015/16.

Ruled out of the early season fixtures due to injury, the forward’s return has seen Real pick up three draws and a win in LaLiga so far this campaign, as he’s notched a single goal in the victory over Osasuna.

Having missed pre-season and endured a bumpy return, there isn’t much slack left for Ronaldo to claim as Madrid’s form continues to drop off, with the club and fans knowing a return to form for the club almost certainly requires their star man getting up and running.
