Pictures: CR7 Inspires Man Utd On Record-Breaking Night

Cristiano Ronaldo broke yet another UEFA Champions League record on Tuesday night as he helped secure Manchester United a place in the round of 16 following their 2-0 win over Villarreal. Here are some pictures of what turned out to be another special night in Europe for the ex-Real Madrid man!

With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer relieved of his duties this past Sunday, all eyes were on the Red Devils on Tuesday night to see what the team would produce against Unai Emery's Yellow Submarine.

A frustrating first half ended with United not enjoying too much of the ball as Villarreal looked to add to the English giants' woes. Their efforts, though, were thwarted by an in-form David de Gea.

The Spanish goalkeeper kept the struggling Premier League side in the game with some acrobatic saves, but it was not until the introduction of Bruno Fernandes in the 66th minute that United began to create chances of their own.

Eventually, the pressure from the away side led to an error from Villarreal goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli, whose risky pass into midfield allowed Fred the opportunity to win the ball back for United before Ronaldo pounced.

The 36-year-old calmly lobbed the former Manchester City shot-stopper to put United ahead, becoming the first player representing an English side to score in five consecutive Champions League matches.

England international Jadon Sancho then scored his first goal for the Red Devils since his big-money arrival at the start of the season with a thunderous effort in stoppage time to ensure all three points for his side.

The result saw United cement themselves a place in the last 16, although second place in Group F is still up for grabs.
