Cristiano Ronaldo managed to finally break the deadlock in Real Madrid's La Liga tie with newly-promoted Elche with a superb long-range free-kick tonight.

Los Blancos had failed to break down their less-than-illustrious opponents in the first half of their away tie this evening, but it was that man Ronaldo who got the job done.

The home side were pinged for an infringement around 30 yards from goal with 51 minutes gone, and the ex-Manchester United ace stepped up to hit his 209th goal in his 206th appearance for Real Madrid.

See his sublime free-kick effort in the video above.
