Ronaldo lives to score goals

19 February 2015, 09:04

Cape Town - Cristiano Ronaldo ended a rare three game goalscoring drought with the first goal in Real Madrid's record equalling 10th straight Champions League win on Wednesday beating Schalke 04 2-0 in Germany.

The holders, whose other goal came through Brazilian Marcelo in the second-half, will fancy their chances of easing through to the quarter-finals when they meet in the second leg next month.

Real's victory, which fortunately for the hosts did not come near the 6-1 hammering they took in last season's last 16 first leg encounter in Germany, equalled Bayern Munich's record which was set back in December 2013.

"It's clear that Cristiano Ronaldo lives to score goals," said Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti.

"It's not a problem for us if he doesn't score for a game or two but it's obvious that the goal did him good.

"It wasn't only a goal for the statistics. It was an important goal - the lead goal. At a key stage of the season it was important to win and I think we're on the right track."
