On Wednesday night Real Madrid ran out comfortable 5-0 winners at Borussia Dortmund as once again Los Blancos rolled out their galaxy of stars as the pre-season slowly draws to its conclusion.

All eyes were again fixed on CR9, the world’s most expensive footballer.

Consistent with the previous pre-season friendlies, Ronaldo appeared to have been given the duty of patrolling the left hand side of the pitch. However the role was hugely flexible, with the Portuguese livewire given offensive license to drift infield and roam more generally around the pitch in order to influence the play.

Although not one of his finest performances, Ronaldo showed a series of fancy flicks and cute touches, particularly in the opening forty-five. On a couple of occasions Ronaldo had the opportunity to test himself from direct free-kicks but, although able to hit the target, the efforts never really looked like going in.
