Ronaldo Keeps Breaking Records
Cristiano Ronaldo Keeps On Breaking Champions League Records
Real Madrid superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, keeps on breaking records this season after becoming the first player in history to score in ten consecutive Champions League away games.
Ronaldo scored the opener in Real’s convincing 3-0 at Anfield last night, which was his 70th in the competition.
He is now only one goal behind Raul’s all-time record of 71 in the Champions League and still one ahead of his counterpart Lionel Messi, who scored his 69th against Ajax on Tuesday
The 29-year-old also broke his Anfield curse after scoring his first goal at Liverpool in his sixth trip to Liverpool, which meant he equalled Messi’s record of scoring in 22 different stadiums in Europe.
Madrid has now scored in 54 different stadiums, one more than Bayern Munich, after previously failing to score against the Reds in three attempts.
It was the first time in history that Real beat Liverpool after losing the all three previous meetings. The defeat was the first time Liverpool lost a European home match by at least a three-goal margin.
Los Blancos captain, Iker Casillas, made his 143th appearance in the competition, surpassing former teammate Raul (142) and equalling all-time record holder Xavi Hernandez.
Casillas also claimed a record 85th win in the Champions League, one more than Xavi’s 84 – this includes only matches they actually played in.
