Cristiano Ronaldo added two more goals to his season’s tally as Real Madrid dismantled Levante on Saturday, providing a timely indication of the form they will carry into the midweek Champions League encounter with Liverpool.

Ronaldo has found the net 15 times in just seven league appearances in this fledgling campaign, which is a record start for any player in La Liga. Liverpool, on the other hand, have found goals worryingly hard to come by.

This was the fifth occasion on which Madrid have scored five or more goals in a single game this season and the second in succession, easily overcoming Athletic Bilbao and Levante without conceding.

They were without Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema at the Estadi Ciutat de València but, of course, with Ronaldo and others among their number this was practically redundant. And it took only 13 minutes for Ronaldo to prove as much.

Fine form

His first goal of the afternoon came from the penalty spot before Javier Hernandez, on loan from Manchester United, double the advantage before half-time. Ronaldo was on target again just after the hour mark, and what a beauty it was as he bamboozled the opposition defence and smashed home.

James Rodriguez, scoring his fourth goal in Real Madrid colours, struck another shortly after, before Isco completed the scoring with eight minutes remaining.
