Real Madrid striker, Cristiano Ronaldo is suffering in front of goal with just one strike from 48 shots in the current La Liga campaign.
Ronaldo has scored just one goal in the current 2017/18 La Liga campaign, and this has given the striker and his club a cause for concern.
Real Madrid returned to winning ways after back-to back defeats.
Casemiro gave Real Madrid the lead at the end of a dull first half, Marco Asensio made it 2-0 after the interval.
Ronaldo provided an excellent assist for Isco to score the third goal, but Ronaldo trundled back to his own half with his head bowed and barely acknowledged his celebrating team-mates with a frown on his face.
Goals have dried up for Ronaldo, and this is a sharp contrast with previous seasons where the Portuguese striker would score from every 6,43 shots. In the 2014/15 season Ronaldo was at his best with 18 goals after 12 jornadas and a goal from every 4,68 shots at the opposition goal-mouth.
The next opportunity for Ronaldo to score comes in a fortnight with the first Madrid derby to be played at Atletico’s new Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.
