Real Madrid's reliance on their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo was more evident than ever Tuesday as the Spanish and European champions meekly lost 1-0 at Espanyol in La Liga.After being sent off and suspended for five games after pushing the referee during Real's 3-1 victory over Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup first leg on Aug. 13, Ronaldo missed the opening four league games of the season.In that spell, Real secured victories over Deportivo La Coruna and Real Sociedad but drew at home to Levante and Valencia in the kind of tight affairs that Ronaldo would habitually pop up with a goal in.The top two also have a game in hand over Real.
