The goals keep coming for Cristiano Ronaldo, and they seem to be making Legia Warsaw a bit nervous. The Portugal forward scored five goals with his national team during the break, and added another for Real Madrid in a Spanish league win over Real Betis.
The defending champions will next face Legia in the Champions League on Tuesday. “Hey @Cristiano, congratulations on scoring another goal!” Legia wrote on Twitter last week. “Hope you’re now out of ammo for Legia next week.”
Ronaldo is two goals shy of becoming the first player to score 100 career goals in European club competitions. And for that, not just the Portugese superstar, even Real Madrid couldn’t have asked for a better opponent to try to keep its momentum.
After beating Betis 6-1 to end a run of four consecutive draws, Madrid face a struggling Legia, a team that is desperately trying to turn its season around after a chaotic start. “We will go into the game strong,” Madrid midfielder Isco Alarcon said. “We know that these two games will have a big impact on our place at the top of our Champions League group.”
Legia, which on Friday lost for the eighth time in 13 games, have the second-worst defence in the Champions League with eight goals conceded in two games. They lost 6-0 at home to Borussia Dortmund in the Group F opener.
And, despite already making a coaching change, they continue to struggle. Coach Besnik Hasi left “by mutual agreement” two days after the 3-2 home loss to Zagłębie Lubin on September 18. Aleksandar Vukovic took temporary charge for the 0-0 draw at Wisła Krakow five days later before the appointment of Jacek Magiera on a two-year contract.
