Ronaldo breaks European Cup goal record

Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo on Tuesday broke the record for the most goals in a European Cup or Champions League season in his side’s semi-final second leg against Bayern Munich.

Ronaldo got his 15th of the campaign to put the Spanish side 3-0 up in the first half in Munich and beat the previous best of 14 registered by Barcelona’s Lionel Messi in 2011-12 and Jose Altafini of AC Milan in 1962-63.

The Portuguese World Player of the Year has now scored 66 Champions League goals and is closing in on Raul`s overall record for the most goals in the competition of 71.

His goal put Real 4-0 up on aggregate and on course to qualify for their first Champions League final since they last lifted the trophy in 2002.
