Cristiano Ronaldo's 100th European goal makes history

A pair of goals against Bayern Munich has taken Cristiano Ronaldo to a century of goals in UEFA club competitions.

Cristiano Ronaldo made yet more history Wednesday, as his pair of goals to beat Bayern Munich 2-1 made the Real Madrid star the first player to score 100 goals in European club competitions.

The Champions League's all-time top scorer, Ronaldo's two-goal haul in the first leg helped Los Blancos overturn a one-goal deficit to take control of their quarter-final tie against the German champions.

Ronaldo's first European goals since September werea neat finish from Dani Carvajal's right-wing cross, before he secured an away win with a prodded finish from Marco Asensio's delivery.

The Portugal captain scored the winning spot kick in Madrid's penalty-shootout win over Atletico in last season's Champions League final, and his efforts on Wednesday put Zinedine Zidane's side one step closer to a 12th European crown.
