Ronaldo fires Real Madrid past Osasuna

Fresh from winning the Ballon d'Or, Cristiano Ronaldo was back in action as Real Madrid took on Osasuna in the Copa del Rey.

Carlo Ancelotti's men held a 2-0 lead from the first leg and quickly added to that tally with Ronaldo opening the scoring after just 20 minutes.

The Portuguese unleashed a free kick which flew straight at goalkeeper Andres Fernandez with the shot-stopper trying to punch the ball clear and succeeding only in forcing the ball onto the ground, between his legs and into the back of the net.

'Tarzan' Puyol swings back into action

Carles Puyol is set to return to action for Barcelona against Osasuna on Saturday.

The club captain is likely to feature for Gerardo Martino's side for the first time this season after recovering from a knee injury.

And Martino is hoping Puyol - nicknamed Tarzan - will quickly get back into the swing of things.

"Puyol's enthusiasm surprises me," Martino said. "He acts as if he's about to make his debut. Seeing him has gotten me all excited too.

"Carles' return is a great joy for the team and even more for him. He couldn't wait to get back."
