Cristiano Ronaldo is cursed. The Portuguese may be one of the five to ten best soccer players of all-time. He is playing against the best, in the same league for a rival club. Ronaldo scored a “perfect hat trick” within 10 minutes on Saturday, scoring with his left foot, his head and his right foot on a penalty. He held the headlines for a few hours, until Messi scored four against Osasuna.
Through 21 matches, Barcelona has a +47 goal difference, has dropped five points and holds an 11-point lead at the top, 15 points ahead of Real Madrid.
