Cristinao Ronaldo's Champions League tally stands at 13 goals

Cristiano Ronaldo shares something in common with Wolfsburg. The Madeira native and the Bundesliga side have each notched up 13 goals in this season’s edition of the Champions League.

The Real Madrid marksman outscored the Germans in the group stage (11 vs. 9), but Die Wölfe put four past Gent in the round of 16 to draw level with the former Manchester United player, who added a further two goals to his tally against Roma.

Before netting twice against the Giallorossi, Ronaldo crammed his other 11 goals into four games: Shakhtar Donetsk at home (3), Malmo in Sweden (2), Shaktar in Ukraine (2) and Malmo at the Bernabéu (4). PSG managed to keep him at bay on two occasions.

The La Liga side’s talisman set a new record for most goals scored by a single player during the group stage of the competition. The previous record belonged to Brazilian striker Luiz Adriano, who found the back of the net nine times for Shakhtar Donetsk during the team’s first six Champions League matches last season.
