Marcelo: We are used to seeing spectacular Ronaldo goals


Real Madrid left back Marcelo has said the players have become accustomed to seeing Cristiano Ronaldo score spectacular goals.

The 29-year-old Portugal captain scored another two strikes against Osasuna to add to his collection of great goals. Both efforts were long range efforts that left the keeper helpless as Los Blancos ran out 4-0 winners.

Ronaldo has now scored 47 goals for his club this season and looks to be back to his best ahead of the crucial match against Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

Speaking to journalists after the game, Marelo, who made his own comeback from injury, said: “We’re used to seeing top goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and I’m pleased for him. They were top drawer.”

He added: “We are good. We now have to rest and think in the important game on Tuesday. The next game is always the most important and that’s how I see it. We have a chance to go through. We have to go into the game relaxed, with humility and respect for the opponent. We will see what happens and if the trees burn or not.”

The Brazil left-back took time to talk about Tito Vilanova too, who passed away on Friday at the age of 45 after losing his battle with cancer. Players, managers and fans have been paying tribute to the former Barcelona coach, who guided his side to the title last season, by holding a minute’s silence before matches this weekend.

Marcelo stated: “It was a great shame. He was an example to football. I want to send a big hug to his friends and family.”
