Cristiano Ronaldo rocking come back

MADRID: (APP) Cristiano Ronaldo took just five minutes to score on his return from a three-month injury layoff as Real Madrid continued their 100 percent start to the season with a 5-2 rout of Osasuna on Saturday.

Antoine Griezmann kick-started Atletico Madrid's La Liga campaign with two goals and an assist as a 4-0 hammering of Celta Vigo gave them a much-needed first win of the season.

Champions Barcelona will attempt to join Real at the top of the table on nine points at home to Alaves later.

Ronaldo was making his first appearance since limping off in tears during the Euro 2016 final, but was handed the perfect return on a plate by Gareth Bale as the Welshman squared for Ronaldo to tap into an unguarded net.

Despite failing to hit top gear Real comfortably matched a club record of 15 straight La Liga wins as Danilo's low drive and a towering header from Sergio Ramos extended the lead before half-time at the Bernabeu.

Osasuna goalkeeper Nauzet Perez meekly turned Pepe's header into his own net for Real's fourth before Luka Modric's fiercely struck shot from outside the box made it 5-0.

Ronaldo was withdrawn to a standing ovation to make way for Karim Benzema with one eye on Wednesday's clash with his first club, Sporting Lisbon, in the Champions League.
