Despite the tie being out of sight and with El Clasico looming, Carlo Ancelotti surprisingly started Cristiano against Schalke tonight.

Or perhaps not so surprisingly, so rapacious and insatiable is Ronaldo’s appetite for goals.

And wouldn’t you know it, Ronaldo opened the scoring tonight, finishing from a Bale assist, to make it 50 goals for the season for club and country.

Oh, and that’s now 47 Champions League goals in 47 CL games for Real.

Cristiano Ronaldo: the Stat Crusher.
