Cristiano Ronaldo Breaks Own Champions League Group-Stage Goals Record


December 8, 2015

Cristiano Ronaldo has boldly scored in a way nobody has ever scored before in the UEFA Champions League.

Ronaldo scored four goals for Real Madrid on Tuesday in its Champions League Group A win over Malmo. Ronaldo’s quartet of strikes took his tally for this season’s group stage to 11 in six games, setting a new record in European soccer’s elite competition. He and Luiz Adriano shared the previous record of nine goals.

Take a look at Ronaldo’s four goals, which came in a 19-minute burst on either side of halftime.

Let’s add perspective to Ronaldo’s extraordinary accomplishment.

Ronaldo also contributed in other ways against Malmo, assisting on two of Karim Benzema’s three goals, as Real Madrid demolished the Swedish side 8-0.
