Cristiano Ronaldo and Goal Scoring Record Set in Champions League This Year
Real Madrid superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, Wednesday night became the first player in Champions League history to score in every single group stage match in a season.
No football player has ever done so in the Europe’s elite competition
The 32 teams in the group stage of the 2017/2018 Champions League, scored a new total goals record of 293 midway through the Match Day 6 finale on Wednesday.
The previous record of 292 was set during the 2000/2001 group stage.
Philippe Coutinho’s hat-trick in Liverpool’s 7-0 demolition of Spartak Moscow was the record-breaker and the 16 teams in action on Wednesday, combined to raise the total tally to 306 at full time.
Liverpool have now scored the most Champions League group-stage goals of any English team in history. They have surpassed Manchester United’s record set in 1999, when they won the Treble.
