Fifteen players have scored two group stage goals.
Ronaldo drew a blank against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday but had already racked up five goals in Madrid's first two games, including a hat-trick against Shakhtar Donetsk on matchday one. There are six players two goals adrift of the Portuguese international at the head of the scoring charts.
Ronaldo jointly holds the record – with Luiz Adriano, formerly of Shakhtar and now at Milan – for most goals in a single group stage, having struck nine times in 2013/14. That was the third season he finished the competition as leading scorer, having also topped the pile in 2007/08 and 2012/13. He was level on ten goals with Lionel Messi and Neymar last term.
