MALMO (SWEDEN), Oct 1: Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo equalled club legend Raul�s all-time goals record and also took his career goal tally to 500 after scoring a brace against Swedish professional football Malmo FF in the Champions League.
The Portugal international opened the scoring in the Group A match on Wednesday when he latched on to Isco�s pass and clipped the ball home. The 30-year-old added a second late on with a simple finish after he was teed up by substitute Lucas Vazquez to help Real win 2-0, reports BBC. Ronaldo�s second saw him draw level with Raul�s club total of 323 goals.
�To equal this record for Real Madrid is great. I am glad to come to Sweden and score again,� Ronaldo said.
�The most important thing is to win. It was a tough game, Malmo were difficult but we controlled the game and scored two goals so we are happy,� he said.
Real Madrid�s victory over the Swedish champions maintained their 100 percent start in the Champions League, having beaten Shakhtar Donetsk 4-0 in their opening match thanks to a Ronaldo hat-trick. � IANS
