Cristiano Ronaldo is a freak.
That's all there is to it really. The Real Madrid hit-man has started the season in cracking form and Shakhtar Donetsk were the latest team to take a beating at the hands of the 2014 Ballon D'Or winner.
Ronaldo bagged two of his three goals tonight from the penalty spot, and of course broke a new record in the process:
499 - @Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored 499 goals as professional player (Real Madrid, Portugal, Manchester United y Sporting CP). Ace.

Cristiano Ronaldo stats are now making for ridiculous reading on a weekly basis, as himself and Lionel Messi have redefined what is expected of a goalscorer in modern football. And the scary part is, they show no signs of slowing down.
