The 32-year-old rifled in a beauty from range as Real Madrid took a 2-0 lead against Borussia Dortmund in the 12th minute. It was the forward’s ninth goal of the tournament, having already scored against fellow Group H competitors Spurs and Apoel Nicosia will thus rest assured when they host German side Borussia Dortmund at Santiago Bernabeu on Thursday. Cristiano Ronaldo, who haven’t had much luck in the La Liga season, has so far scored eight out of Real’s Madrid 14 goals in the group stage of the Champions League. That is the highest and is now just one goal short of equalling genius Lionel Messi’s goal record in group stages of matches. “I think Cristiano deserves more respect because he is such a great player that when things don’t quite go his way everyone has something to say about him,” Zinedine Zidane said at a presser on Tuesday ahead of Dortmund clash. “The club and the fans who love Cristiano Ronaldo know what he is doing. Just last season he had a phenomenal campaign. We are halfway through the season, we still have six months left of the season. Six months is a very too much long time for Ronaldo.” Dortmund, who have been really disappointing in the group stage of the matches, are placed third on the group H and will be fighting for the stay in Europa champion league League. Looking at current stats, Dortmund has lot seven out of 10 matches played against the defending champions. Hard luck truly for the German side at Bernabeu.
