Real's Ronaldo hunts more goals in Germany

05 April 2016, 21:45

Wolfsburg - Cristiano Ronaldo, the Champions League's top scorer this season with 13 goals, can add to his tally and extend his record against German clubs in the knockout stages at Wolfsburg.

The 31-year-old is currently four short of matching his record in a Champions League season ahead of Wednesday's quarter-final, first leg, at the German league club with the return next Tuesday at the Bernabeu.

The Portuguese star is on a rich run against Bundesliga sides and has found the net in all of the last six knockout ties played against German clubs in the Champions League.

It started back in the 2011/12 semi-finals when he bagged a brace against Bayern Munich as the Bavarian giants went on to suffer heartbreak in the final at home to Chelsea.

In the 2012/13 campaign, he netted against Borussia Dortmund as the German side reached the final at Wembley when they lost to Bayern.

But in the 2013/14 campaign, when Real achieved 'La Decima', he notched a total of seven goals across the home and away meetings with Schalke, Borussia and Bayern.

Then last season, he claimed three goals in the last-16 tie against Schalke in a 5-4 aggregate win, netting twice in the shock 4-3 defeat in Madrid having also scored when Real won 2-0 in Gelsenkirchen.

A home Champions League quarter-final against Ronaldo and Real is a dream tie for the Wolfsburg squad, who are without a win in their last three games.

"You can only be impressed with Cristiano Ronaldo," said Wolfsburg's Germany international Julian Draxler.

"Just look at the way he has performed over the years and the goals he has scored.

"Of course, you always follow the progress of a player like him.

"We hope we can keep him at bay as much as possible over the two games.

"But at the end of the day, this is about Wolfsburg versus Real Madrid, not Wolfsburg versus Ronaldo."
