The Portuguese star leads the ranking in the Champions League with four strikes
Cristina Monge / Translation by Michael J. O'Donnell

Cristiano Ronaldo scored two goals against Olympique Marseille in his first Champions League match at the Bernabeu. He also netted two strikes against Zurich and is therefore currently the top-scorer in the Champions League. The bad news is the striker left the pitch with a bruise on his right ankle.

Ronaldo scored the first against Olympique on the 58-minute mark by receiving a brilliant assist from Pepe; he defeated the keeper with a low nutmeg shot. Two minutes later, he provoked a penalty with a great run in attack. Despite hurting his ankle, he stayed on the pitch and scored his fourth Champions League strike in the 65th minute.

The Portuguese star is followed in the ranking by Wolfsburg's Grafite (3 strikes), CSKA Moscow's Alan Dzagoev (2), Chelsea's Nicolas Anelka (2), Milan's Filipo Inzaghi and Bayern Munich's Thomas Muller (2).
