- Cristiano Ronaldo placed a bet with his Real Madrid teammates
- The Real Madrid star man placed a bet on winning the League's highest goal scorer
- From all indications he is likely to lose the bet judging by the impeccable form of Lionel Messi
Real Madrid star attacker Cristiano Ronaldo has made a rather risky bet with his Real Madrid teammates, according to reports from Spain and it seems the Portuguese superstar is well on course to lose his money, following his side's poor start to the new season.
It has been claimed that CR7 made a bet with two of his Los Blancos teammates that he would finish the campaign as the top goalscorer in La Liga.
Well, Real Madrid have just won La Liga and the Champions League, and Ronaldo was in the form of his life playing under Zinedine Zidane last season.
But so far things have not been going too well for Ronaldo, or Real Madrid for that matter, with the team languishing in third - eight points behind leaders Barcelona.
The Portuguese has notched just once this season - 11 less than his long-term rival Lionel Messi, who is the division's current leading marksman.
Ronaldo does have 27 games left of the season to make up the deficit, but it seems he will have to work harder than he has ever done before if he is to do so.
The report that Ronaldo had put his money on the line came from the Onda Cero programme El Transistor during the week.
On the radio show it was claimed that Ronaldo had made the bet with two "Real Madrid captains," but didn't identify them by name.
Los Blancos have four club captains, including Ronaldo, in Sergio Ramos, Marcelo and Karim Benzema - meaning any of the trio may be involved.
