NEWS | 18/05/2017 | Javier GarcíaThe Portuguese forward, who netted twice against Sevilla and Celta, is enjoying a spectacular end to the season.
As insatiable and decisive as ever, Cristiano Ronaldo is heading into the final two games of the season on a sensational run of form. The Portuguese forward has been crucial to Real Madrid as they sit just one point shy of being crowned LaLiga champions and have already booked their place in the Champions League final. At such a key stage of the season, with all to play for, he has scored 13 goals in his last 8 appearances.
The fine run started just over a month ago in the Champions League quarter-finals. The Portuguese star decided a tough knock-out tie against Bayern with a double in the first leg and a hat-trick in the second. Before the next round in Europe, he offered a crucial contribution in the key league clash with Valencia, scoring the game's first goal.
'Hat-trick' in the Champions League derby
Next up it was the turn of Atlético in the Champions League semi-finals. The Whites' number seven helped the team seal a place in Cardiff with another fine hat-trick against the rojiblancos. Carrying on the rich vein of form, he has also struck in the two most recent LaLiga fixtures, netting doubles against both Sevilla and Celta. Málaga and Juventus are next in the firing line, and Cristiano shows no signs of letting up.
