#CODED-ish News::Ronaldo Equals Messi's Record

4:39 AM

* Cristiano Ronaldo scores his 14th goal in this season's Champions League tonight

Ronaldo scored his 14th Champions League goal of the campaign to match the competition's record mark for goals in a season set by Lionel Messi in the 2011/12 season.

The Portugal star scored in the 57th minute of the quarterfinal first leg tie at the Bernabeu to put Real 3-0 up.

Brazilian international Jose Altafini, who also played for Italy, also scored 14 goals in the 1962/63 European Cup for AC Milan.

Looking to avenge their semifinal defeat at the hands of the Germans last season, Madrid flew out of the traps and were ahead within three minutes when Gareth Bale poked home from Dani Carvajal's pass.

Isco doubled Real's lead after 27 minutes as his low shot from the edge of the area curled into the bottom corner.

However, Real's night was soured somewhat as Ronaldo had to be substituted late on due to what appeared to be a minor knee injury.

Ronaldo was replaced by Brazilian midfielder Casemiro 10 minutes from time, but the former Manchester United man was able to walk freely as he made his exit, suggesting he should be fit for Real's trip to Real Sociedad on Saturday.

Madrid had also suffered a disruption just before the game as Angel di Maria was ruled out with gastroenteritis, but they didn't miss a beat without the Argentine as his replacement Isco pulled the strings in midfield.
