Ronaldo hails Real “team” after goal and red card in victory over Barca

Date Posted,August 13, 2017

Cristiano Ronaldo has labelled Real Madrid a “team” after a stunning impact as a substitute in Los Blancos’ 3-1 victory over Barcelona.

The Portuguese scored a wonderful long-range strike, picked up a booking for taking off his shirt in celebration and then received a controversial second booking for diving, before gently pushing the referee in protest.

Marco Asensio grabbed a third late on to all but settle the two-legged contest ahead of the return game at the Bernabeu on Wednesday.

Ronaldo could be in hot water though, with the Spanish Federation’s rules stating that a ban of 4-12 games can be handed out for physically confronting an official.

The La Liga opener against Deportivo comes this weekend, with their clasico rivals in a bad way after Neymar’s departure to Paris Saint-Germain.

After winning the double last season, Los Blancos look in fine form to repeat their success this season.
