And his fourth.

His fifth came off a good assist by Vázquez.

So Ronaldo spent 7 games without scoring a single goal but managed to score 5 today, meaning that he has 5 over just 3 Liga BBVA matches. Cristiano has gained some momentum for the tough season ahead and Real Madrid will need him if they want to compete for the titles.
