Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid are taking on Real Betis on Saturday in La Liga action. It is less than one week since Ronaldo won the FIFA Ballon d’Or trophy and he is picking up right where he left off. Just 10 minutes into the game he scored a screamer of a goal.

He just takes the ball towards the middle of the pitch with a defender trying to keep up and then just releases one screamer of a shot. It rockets towards the top right corner of the goal and goes in just below the cross-bar. The keeper never even had a chance to stop it, and it could be just the first of several goals from Ronaldo today.

It even got a positive response out of Arsenal super-fan Piers Morgan who usually is anti-any team that isn’t Arsenal.
