Ronaldo Champions League .. When a player outperforms hundreds of teams
With the goal scored by Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United’s top scorer, against Villarreal in the Champions League, he has hit more than one bird with one stone.
The Madeira missile – who scored 6 goals this season in 5 matches in the continental championship – reached his 140th goal in 181 Champions League matches, and is now one goal away from his 800th goal in his busy career.
And the closest player to the “Don” – who deserves to be called the competition – is his arch-rival Lionel Messi, who scored 123 goals in 152 matches in the continental championship.
More than that, the official website of the Champions League reveals that there are only 20 teams that have scored more goals than Ronaldo in the history of the tournament since changing its name in 1992, noting that more than 500 teams have participated – until today – in the most powerful tournament in the world at the club level.
