Two more goals in a UEFA club competition, two vastly important goals that helped Real beat Bayern 2-1 in Munich, and a new record for Cristiano Ronaldo, as he became the first player to reach 100 goals in UEFA club competitions.
How did he celebrate it? By indirectly answering to his critics. In other words, in perfectly appropriate Cristiano Ronaldo style.
I don’t know who doubts me. People who love Cristiano never have any doubts. You have to tell me who doubts me because none of it has come to me
the Portuguese star told reporters after the game at the Allianz Arena, adding that
to reach this record is an honour and to do it against a team like Bayern is even better
Ronaldo scored in the second minute of the second half to level the score, and then 13 minutes from time he found the back of the net again, giving Madrid a huge advantage ahead of the return leg of their Champions League semifinal against Bayern.
The Portuguese also revealed something that shows he is aware of the fact that years are passing, and not even he is immune to… aging.
I’ve made a radical change in training in order to reach the end of the season in top condition. In recent years I’ve reached the end of term at my limit, with a little injury
the Real Madrid star told reporters.
