Champions League: Ronaldo top of scoring chart after hat-trick in Real Madrid win


Cristiano Ronaldo is now three goals ahead of FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi in the Champions League scoring charts, thanks to a hat-trick against Shakhtar Donetsk. The Portuguese forward's treble takes Ronaldo to a total of 80 Champions League goals - eight in his last two games alone. "I feel so proud and happy to score eight goals in two games but that is not my goal - my aim is to be good all season and for the team to succeed, which is the most important for me, and win trophies,” he said. "It is just the beginning of the season. The league is long. It is too early to say we are amazing or bad. Let's work the same way and let's see what happens at the end of the season." Real Madrid is now at the top of its group following its 4-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk. In the other group match, Paris Saint-Germain beat Malmö FF 2-0.
