Cristiano Ronaldo sets new Champions League record

Sergio Ramos had already given Real Madrid an early 2-0 lead over Bayern Munich in the second leg of their semifinal tie, but Real’s crowning moment of the first half set a new Champions League record at the same time.

Obviously, Cristiano Ronaldo was involved.

The goal was Ronaldo’s 15th of the current Champions League campaign, setting a new all-time record. Lionel Messi previously held the record with 14 goals in the 2011/12 season, before Ronaldo equaled that mark with a goal in the quarterfinals against Dortmund.

Naturally, Ronaldo was ecstatic. And just so that everyone watching at home was aware of his new record, Ronaldo and friends spelled it out for the TV cameras:

Just look at how happy he is:

And before all was said and done, Ronaldo added one more to his tally, bringing his total this season in the Champions League to 16.

He’ll have one more match — the final — to increase his own record. Odds are he does.
