Real Madrid super star, Cristiano Ronaldo on Tuesday 18th April became the first player to score 100 goals in the UEFA Champions League when he netted a hat trick against Bayern Munich in Spain.
The Portugal captain had become the first player to score 100 goals in European competition when he netted a brace in the first leg making him now ahead of Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, who has 94 goals.
It took the former Manchester United man 137 Champions League appearances to score his 100 goals after his first goal came against Roma for Manchester United in 2007.
It was his sixth hat trick in the Champions League as Messi holds the record for the most trebles with seven. But Ronaldo is the first player to score two quarterfinal hat tricks, having done the same last season.
Ronaldo has scored 103 European goals, with one in the Champions League qualifying rounds and two in the European Super Cup.
