Portuguese duo of Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes set Champions League records in Man United’s 2-0 win over Villarreal on Tuesday night.
While Ronaldo started the game and bagged a goal, Fernandes was introduced in the second half for Donny van de Beek and was influential in the visitor’s goals where he provided the assist to Jadon Sancho’s strike.

Fernandes has now more chances  and registered more assists  than any other player in the competition this season something he will look to carry onto the knockout stage.
Statman Dave notes that Bruno Fernandes has assisted in all of his Champions League appearances this season, while Cristiano Ronaldo has scored in all of his. Ronaldo’s goal was the fourth in succession he had scored for United in the competition.
