If there is one thing that defines a goalscorer’s true greatness, then it’s his ability to deliver at the highest level each season.

And Cristiano Ronaldo fits the bill perfectly as perhaps the greatest goalscorer in football history.

So it’s no surprise to see him with a record 128 Champions League goals for Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus.

He’s also won the competition a record five times, including that memorable three times in a row with Real Madrid.

Lionel Messi is, perhaps, the only player that can challenge Ronaldo with 114 goals to his name.
