Barcelona vs. Real Madrid: Cristiano Ronaldo—Los Blancos Will Win Silverware
Real Madrid haven't won anything since their much-publicized, record-setting purchase of Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
In fact, Los Blancos haven't won anything since 2008 when they won La Liga and have since been relegated to also-rans compared to their fiercest rival, Barcelona. Real Madrid and Ronaldo will have one of their most opportune chances tonight when they face Barcelona (again) in the Copa del Rey final.
Madrid are unlikely to catch Barcelona domestically, but they will also have two more chances in the UEFA Champions League semifinals to better their rivals and upstage Barca by taking Europe's biggest prize and tonight in the Copa del Rey final.
Ronaldo has piled on the individual accolades since arriving at the Bernebéu, but has yet to net Madrid any noteworthy prizes that they expected when they uprooted Ronaldo from Manchester Untied. The pressure, naturally, has gotten to Ronaldo. Although he has yet to better Barcelona, he remains ever confident that Madrid will emerge with at least one major trophy at season's end.
According to an ESPN report:
"Real Madrid cannot go two years without winning a title. I'm convinced that we are going to win something this season and it's going to be very important. The players look very positive and that's a good sign, I like it a lot. There is the ideal atmosphere in the squad for this final straight.''
