Ronaldo makes Champions League history with Dortmund goal

17


Cristiano Ronaldo has broken new ground in Champions League history after scoring against hapless Borussia Dortmund in Wednesday’s group clash.

That goal meant that Ronaldo has scored in every single group game of the 2017-18 campaign, with a total of nine strikes so far. 

No other players had managed that feat previously since the Champions League adopted its group phase in 1992-3, marking yet another record for the Portugal star.

While Ronaldo, who is the favourite to claim a fifth Ballon d’Or on Thursday, has proved prolific in Europe, he has scored just two goals in 10 La Liga appearances this season.

It was the 32-year-old’s 114th Champions League goal, extending his record as the competition’s all-time highest scoring player.
