Cristiano Ronaldo scores in record 10th straight Champions League match

Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo scored in his 10th straight Champions League match on Tuesday, breaking the record previously held by Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Ronaldo poked home from a fine Isco assist just three minutes into Real's 3-1 Champions League quarterfinal first-leg win against Juventus in Turin. He later scored from a sensational bicycle-kick attempt in the 64th minute.

The opening goal -- scored after two minutes and 47 seconds -- marked the fastest of the five-time Ballon d'Or winner's career and was his 15th overall in the historic 10-game run. And it was the 119th of his Champions League career.

The streak began in Los Blancos' 4-1 Champions League final win over Juve last spring.

The Portugal captain leads the Champions League in goals this campaign with 14, and has scored 24 over his last 14 matches in the competition dating back to last season.
