Real Madrid’s record-breaking star Cristiano Ronaldo has set his sights on winning a third successive Champions League title.
Ronaldo – already the competitions all-time leading goalscorer – became the first player in history to convert in all six Champions League group-stage matches as defending and back to back champions Madrid overcame Borussia Dortmund 3-2 on Wednesday.
Madrid will now prepare for the last 16 as runners-up in Group H and the four-time Ballon d’Or winner, who is tipped to receive the honour for a record-equalling fifth time today, is eyeing a Champions League three-peat.
‘Hopefully we can win the Champions League again,’ Ronaldo said.
‘The important thing was to pass through the group stage.
‘Our aim is to win the Champions League.’
Ronaldo added: ‘I’m very happy, we wanted to finish the group stage well with a victory.
‘I also scored; I helped the team to win with a beautiful goal. The record is also important, I’m really pleased.’
While Ronaldo has starred in Europe, the 32-year-old has struggled domestically, only managing two goals in 10 LaLiga appearances for the defending champions.
‘[the Champions League] is a competition that I really like to play in,” he said. “Obviously, I also like to score in it.’
