FOOTBALL - Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo (43), Gonzalo Higuaín (21) and Karim Benzema (20) have become the first trio from the same club in La Liga history to score 20+ league goals each in a single season. On a personal note, Ronaldo equalled an 80-year-old record.
FOOTBALL - When all the smoke had settled on Cyprus, Karim Benzema had scored his 25th and 26th career Champions League goals, reaching the quarter century even quicker than FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi. Karim Benzema needed 41 CL matches to reach at least 25 goals (26 in total). Only Filippo Inzaghi (30) and Ruud van Nistelrooy (30) needed fewer matches to reach this milestone. Lionel Messi needed 42.
