On top of that, he set another record on Tuesday night with his effort against Juve, as he became the first player in the Champions League to score in 10 consecutive games, a run stretching back to last year’s final against the Italian giants.

That’s now 118 goals in the competition in total, as the impressive numbers roll on as he continues to shine on the biggest European stages.

Albeit there’s a long way to go in the tie, it was the perfect start for the visitors who will be delighted to grab an away goal as the pressure will now only mount on Juventus to respond.

With a player of Ronaldo’s quality in the final third though, few would back against him adding to his tally over the course of the two legs as he showed great movement and predatory finishing below to get on the scoresheet.
