Cristiano Ronaldo has broken new ground in the history of the Champions League after scoring against the hapless Borussia Dortmund in the clash on Wednesday.
Peter Bosz's men have been in unfortunate form during their Group H campaign, and they are already out of the running for a Knockout.
And his problems were complicated at first in the Bernabéu when Ronaldo hit home shortly after Borja Mayoral opened the scoring to put the 2-0 before the hosts.
That goal meant that Ronaldo has scored in each group game of the 2017-18 campaign, with a total of nine strikes so far.
No other player had achieved that feat previously since the Champions League adopted its group stage in 1992-3, setting another record for the Portugal star.

Madrid entered their final game knowing they were guaranteed second place behind Tottenham and several stars against Dortmund, although Ronaldo was not among those left out.
