Real Madrid 4-0 Osasuna

After Gareth Bale won our weekly award seven days ago, Real Madrid's talisman was the undisputed choice after another outrageous display of his goalscoring expertise.

Goal's Miguel Churruca said: "There were some doubts about Cristiano Ronaldo's fitness but the Portuguese star was in fine health during Real Madrid's huge win 4-0 win against Osasuna. After an average performance in the Champions League clash versus Bayern, the Portugal star scored two superb goals from distance to make it 2-0 and lead his side to victory.

"The two-time Ballon d'Or winner now has a great challenge, as Madrid on Tuesday will be facing Bayern Munich once again in the second leg of the Champions League semifinal. Will he be ready for another show?"

Congratulations to Cristiano Ronaldo, Goal's 258th World Player of the Week winner!
