Cristiano Ronaldo suffers worst start to La Liga season in career after third- successive blank

Cristiano Ronaldo's form is now becoming a point of concern for Real Madrid after the Portuguese drew a blank for the third successive game to start his La Liga season.

A four-game domestic ban for a red card against Barcelona in the Spanish Super Copa meant Ronaldo missed the start of their title defence.

But after a goalless return in the home defeat to Real Betis,mfurther frustration has come against Alaves and now Espanyol last weekend, meaning a collective 270 minutes has passed without a goal to start his La Liga season.

That's the longest streak in his career with Los Blancos as he enters his ninth campaign at the Bernabeu, topping the 255 minutes he took in 2010.

Ronaldo's season has not been entirely miserable though, as he has begun his Champions League campaign in prolific form.

A double in both games vs. APOEL Nicosia and Borussia Dortmund puts him second in the competition so far, one behind Harry Kane.
