Real Madrid superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, Wednesday night became the first player in Champions League history to score in every single group stage match in a season.
No football player has ever done so in the Europe’s elite competition
The 32 teams in the group stage of the 2017/2018 Champions League, scored a new total goals record of 293 midway through the Match Day 6 finale on Wednesday.
The previous record of 292 was set during the 2000/2001 group stage.
Philippe Coutinho’s hat-trick in Liverpool’s 7-0 demolition of Spartak Moscow was the record-breaker and the 16 teams in action on Wednesday, combined to raise the total tally to 306 at full time.
Liverpool have now scored the most Champions League group-stage goals of any English team in history. They have surpassed Manchester United’s record set in 1999, when they won the Treble.
