Cristiano Ronaldo scores six minutes into his return as Real Madrid win historical 15th consecutive La Liga game

CRISTIANO RONALDO scored in his season debut as Real Madrid make history and win 15th consecutive La Liga game.

Ronaldo, 31, did not fail to remind everyone that he is the Ballon d’Or holder as he netted first in his first game of the season in a 5-2 win to Osasuna.

It only took the Portuguese six minutes to put Zinedine Zidane‘s side in front as the Spanish giant at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.

Gareth Bale rushed into the visitors’ box before passing the ball cross goal for Ronaldo to tap into an empty net.

Danilo made it 2-0 when he fired from the edge of the box and Sergio Ramos added a third with a header just before half-time.

Pepe and Lucas Modrid exploded the scoreline to make it 5-0 early in the second half, but Osasuna defender Oier Sanjurjo and forward Garcia reduced the deficit to 5-2 with 10 men.
