Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is the leading all-time record scorer in the UEFA Champions League, and has netted more goals in the competition than 463 European clubs who have featured in it.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see the six leading all-time scorers in the UCL.

The Portuguese netted a brace in Real's 3-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their round of 16 tie, taking his overall tally in the tournament to 116 goals. As a consequence, he opened a massive gap of 18 goals on second-placed Lionel Messi in the competition's all-time scoring charts.

In fact, Ronaldo's goalscoring exploits in the Champions League have been so prolific that he has outscored 463 of the 511 clubs that have played in the European Cup, according to AS.

Only 48 teams have managed to score more goals than the 33-year-old in the European Cup since its inception in 1955.

Ronaldo is currently just one goal shy of CSKA Moscow's 117 UCL goals and two behind his former club Sporting Lisbon, who have netted 118 times in the competition so far.

Manchester City, with 102 goals, and Napoli, with 60 strikes, are among the biggest clubs to have scored less Champions League goals than the Los Blancos talisman.
