Last night's Soccer match put face-to-face Real Madrid (Spain) and Malmo (Sweden) against one another. The match was played in the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid. The result was amazing: Real Madrid won the clash against Malmo with a score of 8-0. Thus, the Spanish team equaled the record of the biggest difference of goals in a Champions League match. The record has existed since 2007 when Liverpool beat Besiktas Istanbul with a similar score. As a curiosity, in 2007 when Liverpool destroyed Besiktas, the English team`s coach was Rafa Benitez -the current head coach of Real Madrid.

In addition to this record, another amazing feat was accomplished. The Portuguese star of Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo, scored 4 of the 8 goals of the host team. So, Ronaldo arrived at 11 goals scored in only six matches in the current season of the Champions League. His teammate, Karim Benzema, scored a hat-trick. The 8th goal was scored by the young player Kovacic. Cristiano Ronaldo has become the team's superstar since his arrival to Real Madrid in 2009.

Cristiano Ronaldo, 30 years-of-age, was close to level the absolute record of his rival, Lionel Messi: 5 goals in a single Champions League match. However, Ronaldo is ahead of Messi in terms of total number of goals scored in this competition: the Portuguese player reached 88 goals scored, while his rival has only 79. 

This season, Ronaldo seems to be ahead of Messi in terms of performances on the pitch.

Returning to the Champions League, Real Madrid, by its victory against those from Malmo secured the first place in the Group A and qualification for the next stage of the competition. Because Real Madrid ended in first place, the team will be the head of series at the draw for the knock-out stages.
