'Ronaldo Will Step Up When Real Need It!'

Former Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso has insisted the race for the La Liga title is not over yet, and believes Los Blancos superstar Cristiano Ronaldo will step up and deliver match-winning performances when needed.

Ronaldo Breaks Another Champions League Record

The Portugal international, who has struggled with his domestic form this season, has scored only one league goal in eight matches in the current campaign.

Despite Real and Ronaldo's struggles in the league, Alonso has backed his former teammates to step up in the coming months.

"I do not doubt that in the crucial moments of the season, Ronaldo will be there," Alonso said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"He was terrific at the end of last season, and when the team needed him, he was decisive.

"He's as competitive and as motivated to be the best as he has always been."

The Spaniard also touched on Los Blancos' current league woes, but feels his former club can still chase down FC Barcelona, who have a 10-point lead on them.

"There's much time left for La Liga to end and the standings can change really fast," he added.

"Right now, it's true that the distance between Barca and Real Madrid is significant, but Barca has challenging games ahead.

"They have to come to (the Santiago) Bernabeu, and everything can change really fast.

"We have to stay positive, the team is outstanding, and everything can happen."
