Cristiano Ronaldo sets yet another Champions League record

Records are there to be broken… by Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese superstar continued his goalscoring form for Manchester United last night to prove that he is still one of the very best in the Champions League.

Although Ronaldo hasn’t been able to improve United in the Premier League or save Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job, at least the Reds have topped Group F in the Champions League with one game remaining.

Ronaldo helped Michael Carrick get off to a winning start as caretaker boss on Tuesday night, with United beating Villarreal 2-0 at the Estadio de la Ceramica thanks to goals from Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho.

United’s first goal of the evening came through Ronaldo in the 78th minute as he became the first ever place to score in each of an English club’s first five matches of a single Champions League season, as per OptaJoe.

What an amazing record for a player who is in his late 30s!

Ronaldo’s next Champions League challenge will be taking this form into the knockout stages.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has 140 goals in the Champions League from a total of 181 appearances.
