Cristiano Ronaldo scored against Schalke to extend his run of scoring away from home in the Champions League to 12 matches. The last time he failed to find the back of the net on his travels in the competition came in November 2012 at Manchester City. He has been involved in 21 goals in his last 15 appearances away from the Bernabéu in the European Cup.
With his goal against Schalke he equals Raúl and Messi as the top scorers in European competition with 76 goals. He is just one away of matching Messi in the European Cup (75-74) and two away from the Argentine in the Champions League (excluding qualifying matches)(75-73).
