The Portugal star found the net early in the second half at Parc des Princes, matching a mark set by Ruud van Nistelrooy
Cristiano Ronaldo’s incredible Champions League form continued on Tuesday as he matched yet another record by scoring at Paris Saint-Germain.
The Real Madrid star opened the scoring in the 51st minute of the last-16 second leg at Parc des Princes.
With his towering header from Lucas Vazquez’s cross, Ronaldo scored for the ninth straight game in the Champions League, equalling Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record set between 2002 and 2003.
The goal made it 1-0 on the evening and 4-1 on aggregate for Madrid, all but clinching th a in the quarter-finals.
In eight Champions League appearances in 2017-18 thus far, the Portuguese star has scored 12 times, including four doubles.
The last Champions League game in which Ronaldo did not find the net was last year’s semi-final second leg against Atletico Madrid.
Amazingly, that match was still part of a run of 10 goals in the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final as Madrid won the competition for a second straight season.
