Cristiano Ronaldo Breaks HUGE Historic UCL Records

Five-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo broke multiple UEFA Champions League records after scoring in their 3-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen.

The Juventus superstar added the third goal on the night after Gonzalo Higuain and Federico Bernardeschi scored against the Bundesliga side at the Allianz Stadium.

And with that strike, Ronaldo moved 16 goals ahead of Lionel Messi at the top of the all-time European goalscorers chart with 128 goals.

In addition, no player has more goals against clubs from a specific country in Europe's elite club competition than Ronaldo.

The legendary forward has scored 27 in 25 appearances against German opposition.

And if that wasn't enough, the former Manchester United star has now scored in 14 back-to-back Champions League seasons; equalling a record previously held by Raul and Messi.

Moreover, Ronaldo has now broken former Real Madrid team-mate Iker Casillas’ record for most Champions League wins of all time.
