After creating more European history on Wednesday, Cristiano Ronaldo is targeting another Champions League crown.
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 two-time reigning titleholders 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 on Thursday, 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.”
ANOTHER record for @Cristiano!

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.”
