Cristiano Ronaldo 'delighted' with record-breaking Champions League goal

Cristiano Ronaldo 'delighted' with record-breaking Champions League goal”

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo in action during the game against Borussia Dortmund.

Although something of a dead rubber for Real - they are already guaranteed to finish as runners-up in Group H - Wednesday's game presented Ronaldo with an opportunity to get one over on rival Lionel Messi.

They have a huge task to do so, because even with Real Madrid's form floundering a bit of late, Dortmund's own form has been ice cold, losing four of their last eight games, with only one win in that span. It was his 114th Champions League goal.

He was cleverly involved in the opening goal and laid on a handful of chances for others to score, which were not taken.

Messi in contrast tops the Liga scoring charts with 13 goals and also secured a brilliant hat-trick for Argentina against Ecuador to clinch a last-gasp World Cup place in October, earning wide praise.

Aubameyang has never hidden his desire to play for Madrid and it would have been hard for the home fans not to admire the clever second-half chip over Keylor Navas that looked likely to earn Peter Bosz's struggling side a draw. Dele Alli, 21, netted the brace, and Christian Eriksen, 25, put the Spurs up, 3-0.

He wrote alongside the image: "Flying in style!"

"You see few people going out on the street these days".

Portugal made a breakthrough on the international stage with a first major trophy when the side captained by Ronaldo won Euro 2016.

DF Theo Hernandez, 7 - At times he had Marc Bartra cowering behind a cushion, hiding from flashbacks of his steamrolling by Gareth Bale in the 2014 Copa del Rey final.

Bosz did single out Aubameyang, who has long been linked with a move to Madrid, the Dutchman hopeful of keeping the Dortmund star. "His presence and desire to score is so great".

"I want to say what I think". Subs: Marco Asensio (for Varane, 38) 5, Dani Ceballos (for Kovacic, 57) 5, Marcos Llorente (for Isco, 69) 5.

In the 12th minute, Ronaldo curled a stunning ball around goalkeeper Roman Burki.
