Granada defender Inigo Lopez has said that his teammates should be extremely careful of Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo because the Portuguese clearly wants to beat Barcelona striker Lionel Messi in the race for the Pichichi award. The Pichichi award is given to the top scorer in the Spanish la Liga. Lionel Messi is currently leading the race to win the title after having scored 46 goals in the league this season, while he has 68 goals to his credit in all competitions for Barcelona. Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo is not too far behind with 44 goals in the league.
Hence, Inigo Lopez has said that his team should be wary of Cristiano Ronaldo when the two sides meet each other during this weekend. Granada have a lot to play for in the season while that is not the case with Real Madrid, who have already secured the league title from Barcelona. Granada are just two points away from the relegation zone with only two matches in the season remaining. However, one of those matches will play against Real Madrid and the club will be hoping to take at least some points of the Champions. There is a feeling that Real Madrid will not be resting before getting the 100 point mark in the league.
“It will not be easy but we must try. It is true they have already won the league but they still have several records within reach. Also, Cristiano Ronaldo is eager to score more goals to overtake Messi who is the top scorer in the league. His hunger could damage us. It is true that in the last few days they have been celebrating but in the end it is still Real Madrid and they will always come at you. In no event will they just let us win,” the defender told Marca.
