The year is coming to a close and once again it has Cristiano Ronaldo's name written all over it. With Real Madrid, the Portuguese captain has amassed five trophies in the calendar year, including the La Liga and the Champions League.

As the icing on the cake, he's added a mind-boggling fifth Ballon d'Or to his trophy cabinet. He has equalled long-time rival Messi's tally with this win.

#5 Supercopa de Espana final

Ronaldo scores the winner in the Supercopa de Espana final

The image of a helpless Gerard Pique turning around to look at his nightmare, shirtless, celebrating the winner will be etched forever in the minds of Barcelona and Madrid fans.

The first leg of the match between the Liga winners and Copa Del Rey champions was set to end as a draw. But that's until Ronaldo came on as a substitute to beat Pique and curl it from outside the box, into the top right corner, and give Los Blancos a 2-1 lead. He was sent off a few minutes later, following a second yellow card, but the damage had been done.

Real Madrid went on to win the tie 5-1 over the two legs, but it was definitely this moment, that changed the course of the final.
