The Portugal star has netted a total of nine in this opening phase, including at least one strike in every game Madrid have played

Cristiano Ronaldo has broken new ground in Champions League history after scoring against hapless Borussia Dortmund in Wednesday’s group clash.

Peter Bosz’s men have been in pitiful form throughout their Group H campaign, and are already out of the running for a knockout spot.

And their woes were compounded early on at the Bernabeu when Ronaldo hit home shortly after Borja Mayoral opened the scoring to make it 2-0 to the hosts.

That goal meant that Ronaldo has scored in every single group game of the 2017-18 campaign, with a total of nine strikes so far.

Cristiano Ronaldo is the first player to ever score in each of the six games of a #UCL group round (nine goals). Infallible

No other players had managed that feat previously since the Champions League adopted its group phase in 1992-3, marking yet another record for the Portugal star.

It was the 32-year-old’s 114th Champions League goal, extending his record as the competition’s all-time highest scoring player.
