StoryCristiano Ronaldo scored twice in recent Champions League Match

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice during Real Madrid’s latest Champions League match as the Spanish club faced off against Schalke 04 in their 2nd leg and sustained a 3-4 defeat but the final aggregate score was 5-4 in favor of Real Madrid as the team of Carlo Ancelotti just barely managed to get into the quarter-final stages of the Champions League.

The Portuguese star of Real Madrid is now tied up with Lionel Messi as the top goal-scorers in the UEFA Champions League with each player managing to score 75 goals in the European competition. Lionel Messi and C.Ronaldo were both able to surpass the previous title holder Raul Gonzales who had a record of 71 goals in the Champions League.

Real Madrid’s 2nd leg Champions League match was played at the Santiago Bernabeu and the Spanish club was expected to ease past their opponents without much difficulty but it turned out to be a complete disaster for Carlo Ancelotti’s team as they conceded 4 goals in their home stadium and only managed to score 3 goals of their own but it was still enough for Real Madrid to progress into the next rounds of the European tournament.

Even though Real Madrid progressed, it was a very frustrating evening for them and this can be seen by the underwhelming performances of the players and even the Portuguese star, C.Ronaldo was not willing to talk about everything that was going on in the team after the match was over.

When C.Ronaldo was approached by reporters and asked about what he thought was happening with Real Madrid, the Portuguese star replied by saying: ‘’I won’t talk again until the end of the season.’’

Real Madrid has already fell behind in the race for the Spanish League after losing against Athletic Club on March 7, this allowed Barcelona to catch up and seal a place at the top. If Real Madrid continues making these kinds of performances, they might not be able to win any major pieces of silverware in this season. This would be a huge disappointment as Real Madrid is one of the most expensively assembled teams in the history of football.
