Cristiano Ronaldo and the historic record of Radamel Falcao that he tries to break in the Champions League

The end of the adventures of Cristiano Ronaldo in football it is getting closer and closer. But it doesn’t seem like it. The 36 years above do not weigh him down. The Portuguese continues to shine and his ambition remains the same as always. It ages like good wine. The goals keep coming in heaps. And the pending records will soon cease to be, depending on him.

He earned the nickname “Mister Champions” hard – and no one deserves it more than him. Cristiano always finds a perfect refuge in the European competition to shine at the best possible level. And it is still valid.

There is no doubt that the Portuguese star is the king of the competition. In the Champions League he has won absolutely everything and the vast majority of tournament records bear his name. However, curiously there is one that has been difficult to break.

A Colombian on the road

Cristiano Ronaldo is the top scorer in the history of the Champions with a total of 136 goals. Since he scored his first goal in the tournament in 2007, he has not tired of beating his rivals’ goal. In every season he played, it was impossible not to see the Portuguese’s name among the tournament’s scorers. However, among the many UEFA records, There is a Colombian who stands in the way of CR7.

Is about Radamel Falcao. Still no player has been able to match the great feat that the forward starred in a single European season. The ‘Tigre’ excelled with 18 goals in the 2010/11 Europa League with Porto and no one has been able to beat him since then.

In fact, Cristiano came pretty close to breaking that record in the 2013/14 season, when he scored 17 goals and became the top scorer in the Champions League in a single campaign. But at the level of any European UEFA competition, he still struggles to reach Falcao’s statistics.

New try

The scoring seasons of Cristiano Ronaldo do not cease, although their registration in the Champions has had a considerable slump in recent years. In fact, since he left Real Madrid, it has been difficult for him to continue to shine with many goals, as we were used to in the contest.

In the three campaigns he fought for ‘Orejona’ with Juventus, CR7 only celebrated 14 goals, an amount that he could easily reach in a single season when he played for Real Madrid.

Now he is back at home with Manchester United and expectations are high again. The Portuguese crack has had a great scoring start: has four goals in four games with the ‘Red Devils’. In addition, in the debut against Young Boys, the Portuguese left his signature stamped and hopes to continue on the same path in the next challenges of the Champions.

If you keep scoring goals and go as far as possible in the European tournament with United, Cristiano will have the means to break the record that bears Falcao’s name. This is a new attempt by the Portuguese and, without a doubt, he does not want to be left behind in another statistic.

It must also be borne in mind that Cristiano now has a better chance of increasing his scoring record. After what happened in the game against Aston Villa, where Bruno Fernandes missed a penalty in the last minute, it is most likely that now that responsibility from the 12 steps is again CR7. Many goals are yet to come.
