Cristiano Ronaldo freekick goal vs Atletico Madrid

One of the best free kicks ever scored – 2012/13 Season

With much of the La Liga season underway, Madrid welcomed their city rivals to the Bernabeu. Revitalized by Simeone’s newfound passion and tactics, Atletico found themselves ahead of Los Blancos in the La Liga table. Thus it was vital that Madrid came away with the three points not only to make sure they were second, but also to put Atletico back in their place. Ronaldo got Madrid off to a great start by striking in a free kick from a good 25 yards away from goal. The ball had so much dip that it cleared the wall with ease and nestled into the bottom corner of Courtois’s goal. Iker Casillas’s reaction directly afterwards was priceless. He looked straight ahead with his chin tilted up, blew out with his cheeks, and then raised his eyebrows as if to say, “glad I chose RealMadrid and not Atletico Madrid.”
