Cristiano Comeback With Record

After missing the previous three games through injury and suspension, Cristiano Ronaldo came back into Real’s starting XI and produced yet another goal-scoring record last night.

After Modric had scored the opener, 'CR7' got his ninth Champions League group stage goal in just five games this season. This means, Ronaldo bettered the previous record jointly held by Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Filippo Inzaghi, Hernan Crespo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (this campaign) by one goal.

The Read Madrid star – who also missed a penalty – admitted that he was “very happy” to have broken the record, but is not yet back at his best.

"The objective is complete, the team played very well on a field that was very bad. I've broken a record in the Champions League and I'm very happy," he was quoted by Real’s official website.

"The team is very good, confident, and playing attractive football.

"I'm coming back bit by bit. I'm at a good level, but not my best. I feel good and eager to help the team.

"All goals are important for the team and it was special to break the record today, but I don't think about records. The main goal is to win."

Ronaldo’s teammate, defender Alvaro Arbeloa, admitted the Ballon d’Or contender was annoyed to have missed his spot-kick late in the game.

"We look to Cristiano every day, regardless of records. He left the pitch angry because he missed the penalty and does not like to fail, but the important thing is the victory."

Modric’s fine goal also broke another record. It was The Los Blancos 31st successive European game in which they have scored, setting a new competition record.
