Ronaldo Finishes Top Scorer In 2015-16 Champions League

The forward, who scored the winning spot kick in Saturday’s shootout, was top of the goal rankings this season with 16 strikes – just one short of his all-time record.

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has been crowned the top scorer in the 2015-16 Champions League with 16 goals.

Ronaldo was relatively quiet in the final at San Siro on Saturday but netted the winning spot kick in the penalty shootout to earn Madrid their 11th European Cup.

The Portuguese has scored seven more goals than any other player in the competition this season and netted an incredible 51 times across all competitions in 48 matches.

He also holds the record for most goals scored in the competition, with 93 strikes since his debut in 2003 with Manchester United.

It’s the fourth campaign in succession that Ronaldo has topped the goalscoring charts and the fifth of his career in total.
