A couple of significant Champions League goal records were set yesterday. First, Ronaldo became the first player ever to score in all six games of a Champions League group stage. Today's goals also broke the record for most goals in a single group stage. A total of 306 goals were scored in the entire round, shattering the previous mark of 292, set n 2000.

Napoli were the main big team to get sent home yesterday as Dortmund were already eliminated. Both will sink down to the Europa League for the spring. Meanwhile Shakhtar Donetsk advanced thanks to their victory over an apathetic Manchester City.
