The 100th goal – scored in the 77th-minute against the German giants – came an incredible 4,624 days since his first… for Manchester United against Debrecen in 2005.
Ronaldo has now scored his 100 goals from just 140 games – while helping himself to THREE Champions League trophies in the process.
But where have all the goals come from? Check out the full breakdown…
For starters, it’s incredible to consider that only 16 of those goals came during his days under Sir Alex Ferguson, with the other 84 coming in Spain.
The Portuguese star actually failed to break his European duck until his 14th appearance.
