Can Benzema surpass Ronaldo’s goal-scoring record for the Champions League?

In the event of a beating, former teammate Benzema has stated on the UEFA’s official site: “Records will remain and can be broken.
“For me, what’s important the most is giving my best on the field to make sure my team wins, and if I can score goals or assist in achieving them, it’s excellent, but the central aspect is to get on the field take the win.
“My favorite goal this season? All of them are important and good. Perhaps the most beautiful one is the third goal in the game against PSG as well as the penalty that was awarded against Manchester City, but the goal against Chelsea was also good because it was an amazing play.”
