Cristiano Ronaldo sets two new records
Real Madrid faced an uphill task to qualify for the last four of the Champions League after falling to Wolfsburg 2-0 in the first leg of the tie and they were up to the task. Ronaldo opened scoring in the 15th minute to put the Spanish side ahead, he doubled the lead in the 17th minute to give Madrid a comfortable lead. The star man capped off a memorable night with his third of the evening when he whipped in a superb freekick in the 77th minute.
His haul makes him the only player in the competition’s history to score 15 or more goals in two different seasons and the first player to score a hat trick thrice in the same season.
