Ronaldo Nets Four Goals To Reach UCL Scoring Record

Ronaldo Nets Four Goals To Reach UCL Scoring Record

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has become the first player to score 10 goals in the group stage of a Champions League campaign.

The Real Madrid International achieved the feat with his third goal as his side put Malmo to the sword on Tuesday and netted a fourth soon afterwards.

Ronaldo was previously the joint holder of the record with nine, alongside Luiz Adriano, but now becomes the outright leader as he top-scores in the group stage for the fifth time – also a record that no other player can match.

In scoring the 50th-minute goal that took him over the record, Ronaldo followed up earlier strikes in the 37th and 47th minutes for an 11-minute blitz, the fastest hat-trick that any Madrid player has scored in Europe since 1968.
