'Messi is close but I'll break the record'

Cristiano Ronaldo remains confident he will pip Lionel Messi to the Champions League goalscoring record after edging closer to Raul’s mark in Real Madrid's 3-0 win at Liverpool on Wednesday.

Ronaldo moved within one of the former Madrid striker by grabbing his 70th strike in the competition at Anfield, one more than Barca star Messi.

The Portuguese had numerous chances to claim a share of the record but was thwarted by home goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.
