Cristiano Ronaldo's Top 5 Champions League Records
Ronaldo has broken a plethora of records in the Champions League. Here are five of the best:
The Champions League is the most prestigious football tournament in club football and arguably the most elite in all of football. It is also the tournament in which Cristiano Ronaldo undoubtedly plays his best football.
Whilst most of the best players in history have all played in the Champions League; or European Cup as it was formerly known, none have illuminated the tournament quite like Ronaldo has.
The Real Madrid legend's consistency throughout the years, especially in the crucial knockout stages of the competition, is simply unrivaled amongst both his contemporaries and past players.
With CR7 gearing up to compete in a third consecutive final, in Kiev, it seemed appropriate to compile a list of his top 5 records in the Champions League (in no particular order) in honour of what an undisputed talent he is:
#1 Most Goals in Champions League History
The first and most obvious Champions League record that CR7 possesses is that he is the tournament's all-time leading goal scorer.
With the Portuguese's handsome tally currently sitting at a mouthwatering 120 goals, he is head and shoulders above the rest with his closest competitor in this department a whopping 20 goals behind.
This record is an incredible one as it shows that Ronaldo's masterful ability enables him to score consistently in the most elite tournament in football, against the best teams, highlighting that he doesn't rely on weak opposition to boost his numbers.
In addition to that, whilst he was initially slow to find his scoring boots with Manchester United, once he reached Real Madrid in 2009, he has been unstoppable, scoring 105 goals in just 100 games!
