Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, Inter Milan’s Samuel Eto’o and Schalke's Raúl González all scored in the Champions League this week for their sides.
Cristiano Ronaldo showed he was truly back at his best by scoring a low free-kick against AC Milan on Tuesday at the Santiago Bernabeu, as Real Madrid defeated the Italians 2-0. Yet it was Wednesday who had more of the Champions League fire.
Between Italy’s Inter Milan and England’s Tottenham, it certainly looked like the Nerazzurri were the favorites, and somehow, they emerged conquerors. Samuel Eto’o scored twice, including a goal from the penalty spot, and his contribution was just enough to help Inter defeat Spurs 4-3 at the San Siro.
On the same night, Real Madrid’s former skipper Raul also impressed against Hapoel-Tel-Aviv. He scored twice for Schalke with each of his goals coming in each half, while his German team secured a 3-1 win at the Veltins-Arena.
After coming back from a huge injury, Messi proved he was as sharp as ever with a brace against Copenhagen. The first one proved to be of extreme quality, probably appearing as the goal of the Champions League’s Day 3.
