Cristiano Ronaldo has become the first player ever to score in all six Champions League group games in a single tournament.
The Fifa Player of the Year 2017 scored his ninth goal of the Champions League season early in Real Madrid’s match-up against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.

In the 12th minute, Ronaldo curled a stunning ball around goalkeeper Roman Burki. It was his 114th Champions League goal.
The goal sealed yet another record for the 32-year-old and put another in his sights. One more goal and Ronaldo will break Lionel Messi’s record of 60 group stage goals in the competition.
Ronaldo’s efforts were rewarded with a 3-2 win, finishing as runners up in group H. He scored one of those and helped to set up the others, and also had a goal disallowed for offside.
