Cristiano Ronaldo was absolute invisible in Real Madrid's win vs Las Palmas (1-2.) The Portuguese didn't participate much in the game, as shown in the data published by the newspaper AS.

During the 90 minutes he was on the field, Cristiano only touched the ball 28 times, the worst number in La Liga since he signed for Real Madrid in 2009. Only in 6 matches had he touched it less times, but they were games in which he didn't play more than 45 minutes. Furthermore, he didn't score any goal, so he couldn't contribute in the way he is contributing the most this season —scoring.

The little participation of the striker is another chapter of a bad season. Against Málaga, he only touched the ball 38 times and against Granada, 41. Really low numbers for what is expected of the star of Madrid.

After the match against Las Palmas, in which Real Madrid lost possession (48%,) Zidane said he was worried about the performance of the team: "We're not going anywhere playing like this. I always say I'm not worried when we have the ball, but today I was worried!"
