Madrid Press: 206 goals in 204 games for Cristiano Ronaldo


AS, the second most sold Spanish sports newspaper, highlights today in its front page the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo has scored a record 206 in 204 games, thanks to his hat-trick in yesterday’s Real Madrid 1-6 win over Galatasaray in the Champions League opener.

No Real Madrid player has ever had that ratio. “He even surpasses Leo Messi as the Champions League top scorer in away games, with 28 goals”, As points out.

Meanwhile, Marca’s main headline in their front page is “What a festival!”. The most sold Spanish newspaper emphasizes that “Cristiano celebrated his contract renewal with a hat-trick, while Benzema cleared the doubts about his state of shape scoring two goals”.

“Isco played a great game and opened the box with a brilliant goal”, Marca reports. “Carlo Ancelotti made an excellent debut with Real Madrid in the Champions League”, they argue.

Both Madrid sports dailies also highlight Iker Casillas injury. “The good luck abandons Casillas”, titles As. “He came off injured in the 15th minute”, they add. “Iker got injured in a collision with Ramos, but made a brilliant save before leaving”, says Marca.
