Ronaldo marks 100th game tonight

02 April 2014 [15:12] - TODAY.AZ
An important night for Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese will be out for revenge against Borussia Dortmund in his 100th game in the Champions League. Apart from this enviable figure, the player also has the chance to make the night shine even brighter by equaling or even beating Messi and Altafini's 14-goal record in one Champions League tournament.

Cristiano has scored 13 goals so far this season and at the very least has both quarterfinal games to beat this historic 14-goal record.

CR7 started his spectacular career in the Champions League when he was just 17 years old. At this tender age he made his debut with Sporting in the previous qualifying stages of the competition.

The Real forward was back in Europe's most important club competition in 2003, then with Manchester United. These were the beginnings of a player who today is the competition's third-highest goalscorer with 63 goals, only beaten by Raúl (63) and Messi (67).

This season, Ronaldo has already already reached his personal best in the Champions League with 13 goals. Before that, on three occasions he reached 12 (two of them with Real Madrid).
