Cristiano Ronaldo has the chance to set a new Champions League record
Netgenz - Netizen buzz Sport | Cristiano Ronaldo has the potential to break a new Champions League record when Manchester United serves Villarreal on matchday 2 of Group F at Old Trafford, Thursday (30/9) morning WIB. Age is just a number for Ronaldo. At the age of 36, the Portuguese superstar is capable of performing at the highest level and carving monumental records. This time, Ronaldo had the opportunity to break the record for most performances in the Champions League so far held by legendary goalkeeper Iker Casillas.
Ronaldo managed to equalize Casillas' record when ready-viewed Man Utd lost 1-2 to Young Boys, on Tuesday (14/9). Although he did not manage to score a victory with Man Utd, Ronaldo managed to record 177 performances in the Champions League. The figure equals the record held so far by Casillas as the player with the most performances in the history of Europe's most competitive club.
On the other hand, Casillas has the most performances with two different clubs, namely Real Madrid (150) and FC Porto (27). Meanwhile, Ronaldo is with three different clubs; Man United (53), Real Madrid (101), and Juventus (23). Ronaldo only needs one performance back to break Casillas' record as the player with the most performances in Champions League history. This is possible because he is still the seed in the Red Devils.
