Copenhagen - Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score nine goals in the group stage of the Champions League on Tuesday as he helped the Spanish giants to a 2-0 victory at Copenhagen.
WRAP: Champions League
Madrid, which already secured top spot in Group B, took the lead when Croatia playmaker Luka Modric curled the ball into the top-right corner in the 25th minute.
Ronaldo, who seemed absent during the first 45 minutes, scored three minutes into the second half — pouncing on a ball headed on by Pepe.
Though Madrid had more possession, Copenhagen caused its opponents problems on the counter-attack.
The Danish club finished bottom of the group.
