GETTY Cristiano Ronaldo wants Goncalo Guedes at Real Madrid

Real Madrid superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Paris Saint-Germain star, Neymar are set to battle for a new Uefa Champions League (UCL) record.

After dominating domestic and European football last season, Real Madrid are struggling so far this term.

'We have a lot of personality and have some different opinions, but we're pulling in the same direction'.

"It is true that we need to score more goals because, being eight points behind in La Liga, the situation isn't ideal", added Zidane. But the fact that it hit the outside of the post, rather than find the corner of the net, summed up how it has been going for Ronaldo in front of goal in LaLiga this season.

In May, Madrid became the first team to retain the Champions League in its current format and won the Liga trophy for the first time in five seasons, but are currently fourth in the table - eight points behind leaders Barcelona - with their fewest points at this stage for almost a decade.

But according to Ramos, there's no disagreement between himself and Ronaldo, with the Spaniard insisting the pair are friends.

'Nothing has ever happened between him and me, ' the defender told TVE. There has always been a great friendship between us.

A positive start from the Galicians on Celta boss Juan Carlos Unzue's return to the Camp Nou, where he spent three years as Luis Enrique's assistant, was rewarded 20 minutes in when Aspas tapped home on the rebound after a stunning save from Marc-Andre ter Stegen had denied Maxi Gomez.

Will Real Madrid be able to turn their season around?

"For me he deserves to win the Ballon d'Or because he's had an incredible year", Real midfielder Mateo Kovacic said.

Ramos will miss the next important game against Sevilla in the 14th round of the Spanish league on December 9.
