Facing Cristiano Ronaldo as a goalkeeper can’t be too much fun, can it?
His goalscoring record of 368 goals in 354 appearances for Real Madrid tells you all you need to know about his ability to put the ball past any ‘keeper.
The Portuguese superstar did just that once again this weekend as Zinedine Zidane’s side thrashed Real Betis 6-1.

Antonio Adan in the Betis goal might have been looking forward to seeing all of his old teammates again after he left the Bernabeu in 2013. However, not only did he have to pick the ball out of his net half a dozen times, he was also mocked by Ronaldo himself.
With time running out and Adan clearly frustrated with his side's inability to keep Madrid at bay, the Spaniard stop-stopper stood with his hands on his hips just wishing for the final whistle.
But, after he had just stuck the ball past him, Ronaldo decided to mock the 29-year-old ‘keeper by mimicking his frustrated stance.
Adan probably wanted to cry but he appeared to take it in good humour by smiling and shrugging his shoulders as if to say: ‘What can I do?’
Take a look at the brilliant moment below (fast forward to 1:20):
That Madrid win keeps them level on points with city rivals Atletico Madrid and maintains their unbeaten run this campaign.
Madrid’s attentions will now turn to the Champions League where they host Legia Warsaw at the Bernabeu on Tuesday. After earning four points from their opening two fixtures in the competition - against Sporting Lisbon and Borussia Dortmund - they know a win against their Polish opponents would put them in a commanding position to progress.
Let’s hope Ronaldo doesn’t rub it in the ‘keeper’s face when he undoubtedly bags a goal or three.
