To say that age is gradually catching up with Cristiano Ronaldo will not be an understatement for someone to make, but what is amazing here is how the Portuguese goal machine keeps soaring in front of goal at his age [32 years old].
Who would have thought that at age 32, Ronaldo would be able to score his 100th goal in UEFA club competition even before the finals of the 2016/2017 edition?
In fact, it was his explosive performance after the break that saw Real Madrid beat Bayern Munich 2-1 at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday, April 12, 2017 marking his 99th and 100th goals in European competition.
Ronaldo’s enviable brace [two goals] at the Allianz Arena was his 97th in 136 Champions League Appearance. Twenty of his goals has come against German opponents, 13 against Italian clubs, and 9 against English and French clubs.
Guess what, Cristiano Ronaldo has scored six  goals in five  games against Bayern Munich, his second highest against any club in European competition. Only FC Malmo  and Schalke  have taken more goals from the Portuguese.
He snapped 16 goals in European competition at Manchester United before joining Real Madrid, where he continued his free goal scoring streak .
With hundred goals [143 appearances], Cristiano Ronaldo leads the most goals in UEFA club competition chart, followed by his greatest football rival; Lionel Messi who has 97 [118 appearances] goals to his credit. Former Real Madrid’s top marksman, Raul Gonzalez comes third with 76 goals [159 appearances].
Below are some statistical breakdown of Cristiano Ronaldo’s in Champions League:
1. Christiano Ronaldo has scored twice or more goals on twenty-three  different occasions.
2. Christiano Ronaldo did not score until his 30th game in the Champions League competition.
3. Cristiano Ronaldo has scored once in the finals of the competition.
4. Cristiano Ronaldo has scored in the Round of 16 stage for five years on the road until 2016/2017.
Lionel Messi [Barcelona] makes football look very simple in the eye, but Cristiano Ronaldo is simply a goal freak with two legs.
