Ronaldo Equals Another UCL Record

Cristiano Ronaldo Equals Another UEFA Champions League Record

By David Kappel - Mar 07, 2018 08:02 AM @kappilinho

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 12th goal of the current UEFA Champions League campaign on Tuesday night, and in doing so equalled another competition record set by a former Manchester United striker.

Click through the gallery above to see images of Ronaldo's record game against PSG.

The Portuguese netted his side's opener in the second half, scoring in his eighth successive game in the UCL this season.

In doing so, Ronaldo equalled Ruud van Nistelrooy's record of scoring in nine successive Champions League games, set in 2003 during his time at United.

While the Dutchman scored 12 goals during his record run, Ronaldo has struck 14 goals in his past nine UCL games.

The Portugal captain's run stretches back to last year's Champions League final, when the 33-year-old scored twice against Juventus. He then added two braces against APOEL and Borussia Dortmund before netting one apiece in Real's two group stage games against Tottenham Hotspur. Ronaldo finished the group with another brace against APOEL and a solitary strike against BVB, while also netting a double in the first leg of Los Blancos' round of 16 tie against PSG.

Overall, Ronaldo has now scored 117 goals in the competition, 19 goals more than second-placed Lionel Messi.

Judging him won't cause any problems for him, but for your team and your health I suggest you leave him alone otherwise you will end up in ICU when he is angry and your team suffer whole season
