As is the case with every weekend, there were hoards of quality goals, but Cristiano Ronaldo's free kick in Real Madrid's 6-2 victory vs. Villarreal was arguably the best.
Ronaldo opened the scoring in the eight-goal affair, blasting a precise free kick into the top corner of Diego Lopez's net from 25 yards out.
The goal set the tone for the lopsided victory for Real Madrid, a victory that keeps the club just two points behind Barcelona for first place in Spain's top flight.
Here are some other quality goals from this past weekend:
Damien Duff helps lift Fulham to 2-1 victory over Birmingham City with a splendid run and finish.
Martin Bravo nails the winner in Pumas UNAM's 1-0 win vs. Atlante.
What do you think of Ronaldo's goal? Think he is among the best free kick takers in the world? What other goals did you like from the past weekend?
Share your thoughts below.
you can definitely blame the player. He chose to force contact by running into an opposing player, and then faking a foul, saying the other player hit him instead!
Is not the definition of a dive faking a foul? THIS IS A DIVE!
The player chose the route of no honor. Therefore, I do not honor the player.
and your saying messi doesn’t?
There’s no escaping the fact that Ronaldo is a petulant little twat whose myriad character flaws are continually exposed for everyone to see. His completely empty personality and demeanor remove him from being considered among the greats. No amount of statistics can overcome that.
The stats are important yes but Ronaldo contributes so much more than just goals and assists.
