Stop me in the event that you’ve heard this one before, but Cristiano Ronaldo could break another record, tonight.
The Portuguese goal scoring machine hasn’t delighted in the best of seasons, up until now, with Real Madrid, scoring only once in eight La Liga games, with Zinedine Zidane’s Spanish and European champions as of now mulling 10 goals behind Barcelona in the title race.
Be that as it may, in the Champions League, Ronaldo has been significantly more like his typical self, hitting six goals in four games.
What’s more, this evening, amid Los Blancos’ clash with APOEL Nicosia, the Portugal captain could turn into the first ever player to score 17 goals in a solitary year in the Champions League.
The past record of 16 goals in a timetable year in Europe’s first class club competition was beforehand set by, you got it, Ronaldo himself, two years back in 2015.
Regardless of the possibility that Ronaldo isn’t fruitful in his journey tonight, he’ll have another opportunity to set another goalscoring record against Borussia Dortmund at the Bernabeu on sixth December.
Ronaldo has shown up in the Champions League 131 times amid his profession, scoring 111 times and lifting the trophy on four separate events, once with Manchester United and three times with Real.
Zidane’s group may have battled locally this season, yet they are everything except secured a place in the last 16 of the Champions League, with seven goals earned from their opening four games, leaving them five clear of third set Dortmund.
In any case, the consecutive champions haven’t had everything their own way in Group H, with Mauricio Pochettino’sTottenham side leaving the Bernabeu having gained a point before convincingly crushing the European champions 3-1 at Wembley half a month later.
