The Portuguese netted his side's opener in the second half, scoring in his eighth successive game in the UCL this season.
In doing so, Ronaldo equalled Ruud van Nistelrooy's record of scoring in nine successive Champions League games, set in 2003 during his time at United.
While the Dutchman scored 12 goals during his record run, Ronaldo has struck 14 goals in his past nine UCL games.
The Portugal captain's run stretches back to last year's Champions League final, when the 33-year-old scored twice against Juventus. He then added two braces against APOEL and Borussia Dortmund before netting one apiece in Real's two group stage games against Tottenham Hotspur. Ronaldo finished the group with another brace against APOEL and a solitary strike against BVB, while also netting a double in the first leg of Los Blancos' round of 16 tie against PSG.
Overall, Ronaldo has now scored 117 goals in the competition, 19 goals more than second-placed Lionel Messi.
