Real Madrid players, management, and fans are obviously still celebrating after beating Liverpool 3-1 to lift their 13th UEFA Champions League crown. The goals were scored by Karim Benzema and substitute Gareth Bale who grabbed a brace. Sadio Mane got the consolation goal for the Reds. The talking point at the end of the match was directed towards Loris Karius double mistakes that gifted Los Blancos two goals. Mohamed Salah injury also dominated the headlines. However, 2017/18 season real MVP is Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese had a terrible day in Kiev but he had a great season. Take a look at some of his crazy records in the just-concluded season.
5. Top scorer in most seasons- 7
Five times UEFA Champions League winner Cristiano Ronaldo did not score in the final but still finished top scorer in 2017/18 European season with 15 goals in 13 matches. This was the 7th time he has finished as the best scorer in Europe.
4. Goals in Consecutive games- 11 Matches
Bayern Munich somehow managed to stop Cristiano Ronaldo from scoring in his 12th match in UEFA Champions League. The Portuguese had netted in every match since last season’s final against Juventus at Cardiff. CR7 still came out with a record of scoring in 11 consecutive matches, the previous record was 10 games.

Lionel Messi will need to score 20 goals and hope Cristiano Ronaldo does not score a single goal to beat his record in Europe. The Portuguese netted 15 goals in 13 matches in 2017/18 season to take his tally to 120. The Barcelona star is second with 100, former Los Blancos winger Raúl González is third with 71 and Karim Benzema is fourth with 56 strikes.
