Ronaldo Racks Up Another Record
The dudes at Guinness should give Cristiano Ronaldo props simply for breaking the most records.
No question at this stage that he's pretty good at it.
Real Madrid defeated Shakhtar Donetsk, 4-0, that featured Ronaldo topping the Champions League’s all-time goals list.
The Spanish side is in the competition's Group of Death this season. Damn. Remember when that was such a clever term when it was coined back in the 1970 World Cup? Now, no tournament is complete without one.
This year, Champion's League Group A gets the title because Real Madrid is in it.
Their dominationbegan with a touch of fortune:

Ronaldo then did what he always does, score from the spot:
Máquina is Spanish for machine. Same thing in Portuguese.
Ronaldo got his second with the same shot, same side; only this time, the 'keeper guessed the other side:
It's like watching a video loop. Barcelona fans now have two more reasons to call him Penaldo.
By this time, a hat trick was imminent, and Shakhtar Donetsk seemed desperate to allow it.
It's almost like he called for the ball. As hot as he is right now, looks like no one's going to deny him.
