|Truly Penaldo? See How Cristiano Ronaldo Broke Penalty Record In CL- Truegossip by truegossip(f): 4:21pm On Sep 14|
Penaldo, like many Barcelona fans would call him, Cristiano Ronaldo is genuinely known for his ability to win and score penalties. As great as the player is, he has broken all major records set in the Champions League and the latest happen to be a Penalty Record.
In scoring a penalty against APOEL in the Champions League on Wednesday, he has now scored 12 times from the spot in Champions League action, more than any other player in the competition’s history.
His spot kick took him one clear of great rival Lionel Messi, who has scored 11 penalties for Barcelona in the competition.
Ronaldo scored his first spot kick in the competition way back in 2007, when he converted for Manchester United against Dynamo Kyiv in a 4-2 victory.
It was the only penalty he scored for the Red Devils in the competition as he missed his other in a 0-0 draw with Barcelona at Camp Nou.
While the Argentine has scored his last three, Ronaldo has now made six straight since failing against Ludogorets on October 1, 2014 during a match in which he later converted.

THE BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD
CASE FOR LIONEL MESSI
When we all hear the name Lionel Messi, what comes to our mind is that 5ft7 dude, with the most mesmerising left foot ever seen and a host of awards and personal achievements (including 5 balon d'ors). The debate for who is the world's best player raging on in the past 11 years, this is because two footballers have 'duopolized' it. They are Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. As a matter of fact, the last time any other player won it apart from them was Kaka in 2007. Since then, it has been a tug of war with Messi being narrowly on top, at least for the next few months. Messi has 5 balon d'ors while Ronaldo has 4. However, Ronaldo is widely tipped to pip Messi to this year's prize. Messi and Ronaldo continue to divide fans, coaches and fellow players alike, at the same time they continue to draw pundits from every angle for the consistency and brilliance. However, one baffling issue is that we can not say for sure who is out rightly better. Year after year they continue to set and break records while making other footballers look silly on the pitch (ask Boateng about Messi and do the same to Pique about Ronaldo). So what we at grass sports want to do now is to present a case why Messi is should be considered as the best.
