Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo played his 152th Champions League game last night. This was the result of the Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs, who had 151 matches in the most prestigious European club tournament.
More than Ronaldo in the race were just two players – both Spanish. These are Barcelona’s former midfielder Xavi Hernandez (157) and former goalkeeper of Real Iker Casillas (171).
Last night, Ronaldo’s teammate Karim Benzema also made his mark. The Frenchman recorded his 100th game in the Champions League.
As we know, in the rematch, the “Royal Club” defeated Parisians by 2: 1 and with a total score of 5: 2 qualified for the quarterfinals of the tournament.
