Cristiano Ronaldo has set a new record in the Uefa Champions League after helping Manchester United beat Villarreal 2-0 for the second time in their Group F Matchday five game. This season, Ronaldo continued his impressive scoring form in the Champions League after getting on the score sheet again in Tuesday’s win.
It returned to winning ways for the Red Devils, who were winless in their last three games. The goal against the Yellow submarines took Cristiano Ronaldo’s tally for the season to six, making it his sixth in five games. According to reports, the Portuguese skipper is now the first-ever player to score in each of an English club’s first five matches of a single European Cup/Champions League season (excluding qualifiers).
Also, in the game, Manchester United caretaker coach Michael Carrick set a record in the game too. It is the first time an English coach is winning a Champions League on his debut without conceding the wins. It makes it a perfect start for Michael Carrick in his first game as United manager after replacing Ole Gunner Solskjaer.
