Cristiano Ronaldo is now the player who has scored more goals in the Champions League in the same calendar year. With 14 goals in 2013 he has already surpassed the 13 goals record previously held by Leo Messi. Furthermore, Ronaldo equals the record by Italian Inzaghi as the top scorer after four Group games of Champions League with 8 goals. Lastly Cristiano Ronaldo has equalled Shevchenko with 59 goals in Champions League. Only Spaniard Raul, Messi & Van Nistelrooy remain ahead.
On the global level, the goal by Cristiano Ronaldo last night against Juventus gave Real two collective records. Real Madrid become the first Club in the History of European competitions to score in 20 straight games away from home. Plus Real Madrid also equals the Club record that FC Barcelona holds between 2009 and 2012 for scoring in 29 straight games.
No doubt Cristiano Ronaldo will continue to add numbers in coming years & is putting forward his candidacy for the 2013 FIFA Golden Ball Award. All he needs to do is to continue with his extraordinary form.
