It was Ronaldo’s 101st Champions League goal – shared unequally between Real and from club Manchester United.
Throughout their entire history, Atletico have only scored 100 Champions League goals, despite reaching two finals.
Then again, Ronaldo has won the competition three times, twice with Real.
