Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 100th Champions League goal for Real Madrid on Wednesday.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 100th Champions League goal for Real Madrid with the first of his two goals in Wednesday’s 3-1 victory over Paris Saint-Germain, making him the first player to score a century of UCL goals with one team.

The reigning Ballon d’Or winner converted a penalty just before half-time after Toni Kroos was brought down in the box by a silly challenge by PSG midfielder Giovani Lo Celso.

The former Manchester United man then stepped up and beat goalkeeper Alphonse Areola with a powerfully hit shot to his left that was just out of reach for the Frenchman.

The Portugal international also netted a second in the 84th minute, when he bundled home the rebound after Areola spilled a Marco Asensio cross in the six-yard box.

Overall, Ronaldo, who scored 15 Champions League goals for United, has netted 46 on the road, 52 at home, and three at neutral sites in a Real shirt.

The goal also marked eight straight UCL games with a goal for Ronaldo, who has now scored 20 over his last 12 matches in the competition.
