Cristiano Ronaldo becomes the all-time leading goal scorer in the European Competition
Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo became the all-time leading goal scorer in the European Competition after he scored his 77th and 78th goals against Schalke 04 during the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16.

Ronaldo was tied with Real Madrid legend Raul and Barcelona’s Lionel Messi before the start of this match and has now surpassed both of them to become the all-time leading scorer in European competitions.
