Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 71st Champions League goal as Real Madrid notched a club record-tying 15th consecutive win by beating FC Basel 1-0 in Switzerland in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The Portuguese superstar converted a Karim Benzema cutback 10 minutes before halftime at St. Jakob-Park as the reigning European champion, which had already qualified for the last 16, secured first place in Group B with a fifth win in five games.

Ronaldo's goal tied him with former Madrid striker Raul as the tournament's second leading scorer of all time, three behind Lionel Messi, who broke the record with a hat-trick for Barcelona against APOEL on Tuesday.
