Real Madrid were involved in a 9-goal thriller in the La Liga, against Girona, who'd managed to beat the hosts in the reverse fixture earlier in the season.

#5 Cristiano Ronaldo knows exactly where the goal is
Cristiano Ronaldo wasted no time in scoring his 34th goal of the campaign in as many matches - as he fired in a left-footed shot from just inside the penalty area, off a Kroos cut back.
Ronaldo has been the subject of a lot of attention this season, as he generally is. But it's been for reasons that are alien to the Portuguese.
Criticism has been swift to come in from all quarters with Lionel Messi opening up a considerable lead in the goal-scoring charts this season, but the turn of the year has resulted in a turn of fortunes for the Portuguese with his scoring numbers seeing a significant jump.
But Cristiano Ronaldo's work, on the night, was far from over. And we reckon the same can be said about his season.
