Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo sets new UEFA Champions League record after Bayern Munich win

Posted: 26 April 2018 Time: 09:00

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo's goalscoring run came to an end lastnight but he still managed to set a new sensational record in the 2-1 victory over Bayern Munich.

Real secured a valuable 2-1 first leg victory in their semi-final encounter at the Allianz Arena, despite not being at their fluent best and conceding first in Germany.

However, Ronaldo's 11 game scoring record in the competition, that dates back to last season's final victory over Juventus came to an abrupt halt.

But the five-time Ballon d'Or winner did set a new record with his 96th victory.

Ronaldo has now appeared in more games in which his team won than any other player in the history of Europe's elite club competition, moving past former goalkeeper Iker Casillas.

The victory was also a particular milestone for Los Blancos, as they became the first team to win 150 Champions League games.
