Ronaldo did not score in the derby on Saturday evening. This means that his last goal as a 26-year-old came against Real Zaragoza in La Liga, on 28 January 2012.
Ronaldo had previously scored against Barcelona in the Copa del Rey in Madrid’s 2-2 draw on January 25.
Earlier on, the Portuguese star had scored his last double in his 26th year, while his clash against Sevilla on December 17 last year contained his very last hat-trick.
Happily for Ronaldo, his last Champions League game this just-ended year saw him score a brace against Lyon, as Real grabbed a 2-0 win.
His last performance for Portugal was also nothing less than sublime, as he netted two goals that helped his national team beat Bosnia 6-2 in the UEFA Euro 2012 qualification playoffs.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s first game after his birthday should normally be against Levante on February 12 in La Liga, whereas a meeting against CSKA Moskva on February 21 is supposed to mark his first Champions League appearance as a 27-year-old.
Speaking of the Italian model, the father-of-one is said to have dated her in the past—although there were no real confirmation.
Anyways, birthday boy Ronaldo is currently with modelling icon Irina Shayk, and it will be interesting to see how he will handle his affairs on and off-the-pitch in his new age.
