Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to make his 400th appearance against Borussia Dortmund.
With a staggering 409 goals for Los Blancos since settling in Spain in 2009, the 32-year-old will approach the crucial Champions League contest beaming with a unique sense of determination; to resurrect his scoring form. Cristiano recorded no goal in his last two games against Real Betis and Saturday’s encounter away to Deportivo Alaves.
As expected, the Signal Iduna Park will be buzzing with strong decibels, especially from the 25,000 capacity Yellow Wall section as well as a revamped performance from new coach Peter Bosz’s energetic squad. Despite the intimidating atmosphere, CR7 will grace the occasion with his Real Madrid teammates digging for a second triumph in the UCL group stage in Germany.
The Spanish giants thrashed APOEL Nicosia 3-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu. As he makes his 400th display, what can we expect from the Whites’ talisman?
RESTORE HIS GOAL SCORING FORM
Ronaldo was a pale shadow of himself in his first La Liga encounter against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu. The superstar failed to score against struggling Deportivo Alaves as Dani Ceballos’ brace handed Los Merengues a 2-1 win.
Indeed, it’s normal for any player to draw zero goals in his career. But for the Madeira-born forward, that’s not satisfactory due to his impressive records. In fact, Ronaldo must bounce back on Tuesday night.
• LOS BLANCOS TO COMPETE IN STYLE ONCE AGAIN
UCL night, big night! The twelve-time European champions will play in their favorite tournament. Madridistas will be eager to see their club deliver in dazzling fashion. Who else to lead the brilliant show than CR7?
• RONALDO TO CELEBRATE HIS 400TH REAL MADRID FIXTURE IN DRESSING ROOM
As custom demands at Real Madrid, players celebrate their appearances, goals and contract renewals with a specially branded jersey. A win against the eight-time Bundesliga winners will better Ronaldo’s memorable occasion in the changing room.
Currently with two goals, the current UEFA Best Player will be poised to increase his tally on Tuesday. He holds the title for the Champions League all-time top scorer with 107 goals. Good luck CR7 as you shame all critics!
