Cristiano Ronaldo scores 750th career goal in routine win

Cristiano Ronaldo scored the 750th goal of his remarkable career in Juventus’ 3-0 win over Dynamo Kyiv, as Stephanie Frappart became the first female to referee a men’s Champions League match.

Federico Chiesa, with his first-ever Champions League goal, and Alvaro Morata were also on target while Ronaldo reached another milestone although it was far from his most spectacular goal as the ball appeared to go in off his shin.

The 35-year-old has scored 450 goals for Real Madrid, 118 for Manchester United, 102 for Portugal, 75 for Juventus and 5 for his first club, Sporting.

Juventus, who had already qualified for the last 16 after three wins from their opening four Group G games, scarcely had to get out of second gear against Mircea Lucescu’s side, with Federico Chiesa’s first goal for the club midway through the first half setting them on their way.

Chiesa opened the scoring with bullet header, scoring his first ever goal in the competition in 21st minute.

Ronaldo side-footed against the bar before halftime but, as usual, the Portuguese was not to be denied and was on target in the 57th minute with his tenth goal in eight games this season.

Alvaro Morata sealed the routine win soon after to ensure Juve go into next week’s final group game against Barcelona with an outside chance of securing top spot.
