Watch: Ronaldinho Sets Up ALL Of The Goals In Legends Game Against Real Madrid

Watch: Ronaldinho Sets Up ALL Of The Goals In Legends Game Against Real Madrid
By Gavin Cooney

In 2005, Ronaldinho became only the second Barcelona player to be afforded a standing ovation by Real Madrid fans at the Santiago Bernabeu. He followed in the footsteps of Diego Maradona, with the crowning glory two glorious goals in a 3-0 Clasico win:

Ronaldinho's career peaked in 2006, and sadly we were deprived of seeing that extraordinary genius as regularly as we would have liked, as the Brazilian's career meandered into disappointment. He will always remain capable, however, of flashes of genius, and he has graced a recent legends game between Barcelona and Real Madrid.

The game took place last night in Beirut, and proved to be somewhat of a repeat of what we saw at the Bernabeu last week, as Barca won 3-2.

It was Ronaldinho's first appearance in a Barca shirt since leaving the club in 2008, and he promptly went about setting up all of the goals.

The first was an outrageous no-look assist for Ludovic Giuly, the second a more conventional but no less classy set up for Simao, and the third another defence-splitting pass for Giuly.
