Cristiano Ronaldo Becomes First Player In Champions League History To Score 100 Goals For One Club
Cristiano Ronaldo has reached the century mark in goals scored in the Champions League with Real Madrid, becoming the first player ever to accomplish that feat with a single team.
The Portuguese forward converted a first-half penalty against Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their last-16 tie at the Santiago Bernabeu to take his Champions League tally into triple figures for Real Madrid.
However, Ronaldo may not be alone in that feat for long, with Barcelona star and rival Lionel Messi stands at 97 goals in the Champions League, with Barca squaring off against Chelsea on Feb. 20 in the first leg of their last-16 tie.
The 33-year-old has 115 goals in Europe’s premier club competition in total with 15 of those coming during his time at Manchester United. The Portuguese forward has won the competition on four occasions, while also being the only player to score in three separate finals.
