WATCH: Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal gives Real Madrid early lead against Dortmund

Despite Borussia Dortmund being in control for the first 17 minutes, it was Real Madrid who scored first. After what seemed to be a clear handball that wasn’t called, Cristiano Ronaldo fired a fast shot toward the far post to give Real the lead.

After expressing disappointment in being subbed out by Real manager Zinedine Zidane their last La Liga match, it seems that all is well now. Scoring goals will make any forward happy, none more so than Ronaldo.
