Cristiano Ronaldo's second-half free-kick ensured Real Madrid picked up a fifth trophy of 2017 by beating Gremio 1-0 in Abu Dhabi Saturday to retain the Club World Cup.A third Club World Cup in four years brings Madrid level with rivals Barcelona as the most successful side in the competition's history and adds to the La Liga, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and Spanish Super Cup titles already won by Zinedine Zidane's men this year.Ronaldo has now scored 15 goals in 20 appearances for Madrid this season despite a slow start in La Liga.Gareth Bale was left on the bench despite scoring with his first touch as a substitute against Al Jazira Wednesday to book Madrid's place in the final, as Zinedine Zidane kept faith with the same side that started Real's Champions League final triumph over Juventus back in June.Ronaldo, though, confirmed he will be fit for next weekend's Clasico against Barcelona.
