Ronaldo breaks group stage goal record as Real march on

Jamie Holland EURO ROUND-UP

Published 11/12/2013 | 23:32

Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid racked up the records as they ended FC Copenhagen's unbeaten home run in the Champions League with a 2-0 triumph at the Parken Stadium last night.

Midfielder Luka Modric opened the scoring and set the first record for Madrid, who have scored in an unprecedented 31 consecutive Champions League fixtures, when he curled home a beauty from 20 metres after 25 minutes.

Ronaldo scored Madrid's second, and his group stage record ninth of the campaign, three minutes after the interval and then spurned a chance to make it 10 when he had a last-minute penalty saved.

Bayer Leverkusen's 1-0 win at Real Sociedad put them through as runners-up behind Group A winners Manchester United. The Bundesliga side's victory lifted them above Shakhtar Donetsk into second.


Javier Saviola scored twice as Olympiakos pipped Benfica to second spot in Group C by beating visitors Anderlecht 3-1. It was an extraordinary match in which the Belgians finished with eight men after the Greek side scored one penalty having missed two.

Benfica beat group winners Paris St Germain 2-1 but drop into the Europa League.

Substitute Tomas Wagner scored in the final minute as Viktoria Plzen came from behind to beat a nine-man CSKA Moscow 2-1 to secure a place in the Europa League.

Plzen finished third in Group D with three points, while CSKA end bottom of the table -- also with three points, with Bayern Munich and Manchester City advancing to the knockout stages.

Unmarked Wagner collected a Frantisek Rajtoral cross to net the winner, after Ahmed Musa had headed home in the 65th minute to put CSKA ahead before Daniel Kolar equalised with a header in the 76th minute.
