Zidane gives awkward response over Ronaldo/Messi Ballon d'Or debate

Real Madrid players all believe the 2017 Ballon d'Or is a foregone conclusion, with Isco saying on Monday, October 16: "Cristiano has to win it, absolutely".

Ronaldo ended his wait for a Liga goal when he struck a late victor in Saturday's 2-1 victory at Getafe, and Isco says there was never any real concern over his form.

Madrid, who were playing without Gareth Bale - who was injured - started the match fifth in La Liga and opened the scoring just before half-time through a Karim Benzema goal.

"They have wonderful players, and it will be hard". I have a continuity I didn't have before, so you get this trust which is important for a football player. He defines the style of the team, and is the flawless forward partner alongside Cristiano, because he links the midfield, moves around and is comfortable in every position up front.

Qualcomm is nearing its march towards commercial availability of 5G with its recent announcements at its 4G/5G Summit. By using the 5G chip, Qualcomm has been able to achieve gigabit speed using "several 100MHz 5G carriers".

In recent years, the Ballon d'Or has become a personal duel between Ronaldo and Barcelona star Lionel Messi, with no other player winning the award since Kaka in 2007.

Just as it looked like Real Madrid were going to drop points for already the fourth time this season Cristiano Ronaldo came up with the goods, scoring his first league goal of the season and the victor in the 85th minute against Getafe. It's true he hadn't scored many goals in the league so far this season but in the Champions League he has.

"It was only a matter of time", Isco said.

"I think Ronaldo deserves the prize because he won with Portugal, he won La Liga and he won the Champions League", said the Belgian. What we achieved past year, we want to achieve more and from now on, we will see a much better Real Madrid.
