The Real Madrid ace bagged a brace against the Bavarians in the Champions League to reach the century mark in European play

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 100th club goal in European competition during Wednesday’s 2-1 victory over Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-final first leg.

The 32-year-old’s first of the night came just after half-time when he took a brilliant touch to turn home a low cross from Dani Carvajal, pulling Madrid level with the Bundesliga leaders following Arturo Vidal’s opener..

That goal broke a long spell, by Ronaldo’s standards, of 659 minutes without scoring in Champions League play.

The Portugal forward poked home a second in the 77th minute, using the bottom of his boot to slide the ball between Manuel Neuer’s legs for the game-winner.

The goals continued a trend for Ronaldo, who has feasted on Bayern Munich in Champions League play, having scored five times in five previous meetings with the German side.
