Cristiano Ronaldo and Álvaro Morata strike late as Real Madrid beat Sporting

Cristiano Ronaldo did not celebrate a goal last night, but that does not mean he did not score one – and a huge one at that. The Real Madrid striker curled in an 88th-minute free‑kick and immediately lifted his hands apologetically towards the top of the north end of the Santiago Bernabéu where Sporting Lisbon’s supporters had fallen quiet for the first time. As Ronaldo raised his hands, Madrid’s supporters raised the roof. Three minutes later, the volume rose once more, when the substitute Álvaro Morata headed in an injury-time winner.

Until Ronaldo’s moment, Sporting’s supporters, around 5,000 of them, had seemed set to celebrate victory, thanks to Bruno César’s 47th‑minute goal. They would have deserved it, too. But then the man who began his career in their colours snatched victory from them and they were still recovering when Morata snatched even the draw away, too.
