Cristiano Ronaldo ‘delighted’ with record-breaking Champions League goal

Cristiano Ronaldo set yet another Champions League record after scoring in Real Madrid’s 3-2 win over Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday to become the first player to find the net in all six group-stage matches reports Skysports.

Madrid had already guaranteed second place behind Group H winners Tottenham and led 2-0 after Borja Mayoral opened the scoring and Ronaldo netted his ninth group-stage goal this season.

Ronaldo, the all-time leading scorer in the Champions League with 115 goals, netted with a well-placed shot from outside the area after a pass by Mateo Kovacic in the 12th minute, curling the ball into the top corner.

“We wanted to finish the group stage well, with a win, and we did so,” Ronaldo told UEFA.com. “I scored, I helped the side win. It’s a nice goal and the record is important, too. I’m delighted.”

Ronaldo had scored 11 group-stage goals two seasons ago, the most ever in the competition. He also holds the record for most Champions League goals in a season after scoring 17 in 2013/14. Earlier this year he became the player with the most penalty kick goals in Champions League history, with 12, one more than Lionel Messi.

The Portugal forward has been struggling in the Spanish league, with only two goals in 10 matches, but has scored nine times in his six Champions League games.
