Cristiano Ronaldo is on fire
this week, and a hat-trick on Tuesday in a 4-0 win over city neighbours Getafe
took his tally to an incredible seven goals in the last four days! Not even
Messi can top that, and it looks fairly clear that he will be this season's
Liga Pichichi. Benzema also scored in that match to take him on to 24 for the
season, not bad for someone who has been written off as useless by the press!
Meanwhile ex Madrid strikers Negredo and Soldado keep up their fight for a
place in Del Bosque's summer squad, the Sevilla man scoring two in a 3-2 defeat
at Osasuna, and the Valencia number nine getting one in a 2-2 draw at Espanyol.
Osvaldo got one for the Catalans in that match to increase his price tag, and
Levante's Caicedo (on loan from Manchester City) will also be on many people's
shopping list as he scored his 14th of the season in a 1-1 draw which saw
Barcelona tie up the league title and his own team virtually ensure another
season in the top flight. (13.05.11)
